Presentation of the topic in front of the Berlin Dom


Bible studies or large concerts, Taizé worship or socio-political panel discussions – the events are as varied as its visitors.

Planning the programme for the Kirchentag starts with choosing the theme. The words taken from Genesis 16 “you see me”, along with the biblical texts for the services of worship, for the celebratory communion service and the bible studies, were decided on in October 2015 and set the overall direction of the programme.
