Group visits

Are you travelling in the Holy Land with a group and keen to find out about life and work here? Our pastors and volunteers are always pleased to welcome groups.

A talk lasts approx. 45 minutes.

Groups can also attend our noonday prayers (Mondays to Fridays at 12 noon) in the Church of the Redeemer and pay a visit to Café Kreuzgang or Café Auguste Victoria.

As the church's work is not funded first and foremost by church taxes, as is the case in Germany, we ask everyone who visits us to make a donation.

Are you looking for ideas for meetings with certain persons or institutions, or do you need tips for excursions? Our pilgrimage centre will gladly advise you.

If your group would like to talk to the Provost, please write to
