Starting with the French immigrants in the 17th century, Berlin has a long-standing tradition of multicultural input also in religious life. In Berlin you will find many national churches from other countries, where services are held in the respective languages.
Many of those national congregations share a church with a local German congregation. You are welcome to attend the German services as well and take part in the life of the parish. If you don´t find your church in the list below and for more information, please contact the Ecumenical Council of Churches Berlin-Brandenburg. The Council also will be able to assist you in finding your national congregation if you are not of Protestant denomination.
Some of the German congregations in the more international quarters of the city also offer services in English or with English simultaneous translation. You are welcome to attend!
