We celebrate with prayer and services of worship every day at Berlin's Evangelical Cathedral. You are warmly invited, simply come along and celebrate with us. The service with Holy Communion on Sunday at 10 is a wonderful experience above all else.
Your children are young but you would like to attend a service on Sundays where you are really able to listen to the sermon? This is no problem at Berlin Cathedral, given that we celebrate children’s services of worship every Sunday at 10 AM with girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 12. Before the readings, the children are invited to attend the children’s service of worship. There they will enjoy biblical stories, singing, prayer and crafts.
When the entire Cathedral is buzzing with the sound of young voices, when groovy music blankets the service congregation, when boys and girls are singing their hearts out, when posters are unfolded or wishes written on the Cathedral's pillars – then this is the school pupils’ service held at Berlin Cathedral.
The Cathedral is illuminated by candlelight. Time for God – Time for oneself – Time for one another. The room is filled with the first few beautiful notes emanating from the piano. The voices and other instruments become fused in celebration and praise of God. The Taizé evenings involve a moving service of worship. Every month sees hundreds of people celebrate on one occasion at Berlin Cathedral.
Our evening prayers are a great opportunity to enjoy a calming atmosphere accompanied by organ and choir music, allowing visitors time to reflect on the week and look forward to the coming Sunday. Every Saturday at 6 PM music emanates from Berlin Cathedral, offering a clear reference to the following Sunday. The Cathedral Vespers last for approximately 45 minutes, and admission is naturally free of charge.
Once a month sees us celebrate a Cathedral Vesper as a choral Evensong very much in keeping with Anglican tradition. This special form of Cathedral Vesper is largely supported by a choir called The English Choir Berlin conducted by Kathleen Bird.
Please note that suitcases, large bags and rucksacks may not be taken into Berlin Cathedral. This measure applies for concerts, visits and church services and is unfortunately necessary for security reasons. There are several lockers in the Cathedral arcades which we invite you to use for your luggage.
