Our goups  and activities

Children’s Church

The Church has a lively and active Children’s Church of approximately 20 children of various language backgrounds. The children are currently split into two groups: there is a creche for 0-3 years and another group for 5-12 years  These groups meet on Sundays.

The women’s group (daytime)

This group is intended for women who are able to meet during the day and who wish to study, pray and talk with one another. The group meets in private homes at 10:00 twice a month. The group is open to women of all ages.

The women’s prayer group (evening)

Women of all ages are welcome to join us when we meet on  Thursday  from 19:30 – 21:00 at the church. Through prayer we seek to deepen our relationship with God as well as strengthen our sense of supporting and caring for one another.

Roots and Shoots Bible Study Group

This group is open for anyone to attend at any time. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at 19:30 in the church.

Men’s Breakfast

This group meets on the first Saturday of each month at church at 08:00. The purpose of the group is for men to get together, to enjoy a good breakfast and to talk and pray together. We normally aim to finish by 09:30.

Singing group

We have a small singing group, open to anyone who enjoys singing, which helps to introduce new songs to our worship. They meet to practise twice a month.

Outside Activities 

Weekend Retreat
Each year we hold an annual church retreat over one weekend. This is usually one of the highlights of our community life together.

Quiet Days
Once or twice a year we have quiet days. These are opportunities for quiet prayer and contemplation.

Bazaar
Each year  we hold a fund-raising bazaar to support our church finances. It is very much a team effort by the whole church community.Freunde von der Strasse
We join with the Old Catholic and Methodist congregations once a year to invite the homeless and isolated to lunch and afternoon tea in St. Martin’s parish hall.

Outward giving

Each year we contribute 10% of our pledged income to a range of different charities. These include:

APERSEC Burkina Faso (providing health care and clean water in rural areas)
Freiburger Tafel (providing cheap food for those on very low incomes)
The Salvation Army ( Die Heilsarmee )
