New Song: Beautiful Forever

New Song: Beautiful Forever

In February a group of musicians from our church had the privilege to lead the singing at a women’s conference in FeG Ettlingen, and introduce a brand new song we’d written for the occasion. Im Februar hatte eine Musikteam aus unserer Gemeinde das Privileg, bei einer Frauenkonferenz in FeG Ettlingen den Lobpreis leiten. Wir einführte einer neuen Song, den wir für diesen Konferenz geschrieben haben. The […]

Kunstlicht 2013

What a night it was on Saturday past! I’m so proud of everyone who took part in this arts project. It went even better than I had hoped, and I can tell that this will be the start of something special in the creativity of our congregation. I’ll post some videos and audio when they’ve all been edited, but for now, here’s some photos (thanks […]

Leading in the morning

I’m jumping in to lead sung worship in the morning, and it will be the very first time I’ve led auf Deutsch! I’m a bit nervous, although I’m pretty sure that this was actually the very same historical context in which Romans 8:26 was written (j/k). We’re doing a mix of German and English songs, including a couple of English translated into German songs.. Here’s what […]

A creative project in our church // Ein kreatives Projekt in unser Gemeinde

It’s dangerous to suggest an idea in our church, because chances are someone will reply with “Super! Mach das!”. Several months back, on a music weekend in the Black Forest I suggested to our music area leader that, as we’ve got so much talent in our church, we should do something to encourage people to create new works and to work together. In short, that’s […]

International Worship – Sunday Edition!

Last Sunday FeG Karlsruhe held its first ever International Sunday morning service. We (the International Worship team) joined forces with the Chinese congregation who meets in our building, and with Encuentro, the long-time Spanish community in our church. It was a great morning, even with the exhaustion of having to lead two services back-to-back. We heard some powerful testimonies, sang heartily about the risen Christ […]

InternationalWorship ( 国際礼拝) April – songs & sermon

April is really getting away from me – Endproben will do that to you – and I nearly forgot this month’s post-IW post! We had a guest preacher on the 6th of April: Pastor Tanabe, who has been pastoring Japanese churches in Germany for about 20 years. Here’s Pastor Tanabe’s Sermon (it’s in Japanese and English). His wife did this kids song. Here are the […]

We’re in!

I just received an exciting email from our Pastor letting us know that at the members’ meeting last night, we were (‘gladly’ and ‘unanimously’) voted into membership of the FeG Karlsruhe. The mission of FeG (Free Evangelical Congregation) Karlsruhe is (my translation): Commissioned in the power, and for the glory of God, we want people alienated from God to know Jesus Christ,  and as a […]

International Worship #1

International Worship #1

I had meant to blog about this earlier in the week, but got a bit distracted by the 7in7 challenge. Last Sunday evening we held the inaugural International Worship service at the FeG Karlsruhe. It was a great evening, with over 100 people joining us. The singing and preaching (Eph 4 – Unity in Christ) was in English, with French and Farsi translation. The food afterwards […]

International Worship in Karlsruhe

International Worship in Karlsruhe

Despite Nathan highlighting me as a conscientiousness (or perhaps simply conscious?) blogger, I feel I need to apologise for a lack of posts over the last couple of weeks.  The new season has hit with vigour – reprising several parts from last season, in a very short space of time, and learning new music, not least, some excellent, but tricky songs I will be giving the world premiere of […]
