The Scottish-based online ministry Sanctuary First continues to offer daily worship as well as pastoral support for many life situations:

The World Council of Churches’ ecumenical prayer cycle for this week focuses on Malawi and Zambia:

The Pauluskirche is still not open for gathered worship, but it remains open from Tuesday to Friday between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. till noon for individual and private prayer. Please observe standard precautions such as physical distancing when you enter the church.

Our weekly offerings during worship are our congregation’s main source of income. The corona crisis has put a stop to this, so please consider making donations by bank transfer in order that the ECC may continue to cover ongoing costs. Bank account details are shown below. Thank you.
