Kidderminster - Husum Church Twinning

 

Last year, Kidderminster churches were invited to go to Husum at Advent 2018 for a preliminary visit to re-start the church twinning. So 3 people from 2 Kidderminster churches went to Husum in December 2018 and we were warmly welcomed.

From this visit, the Husum churches invited a larger group to come at Pentecost 2019, which is now happening from 6th to 11th June.

There will be 7 people from 6 different Kidderminster churches and 4 different traditions going, which are:

  • The Anglican tradition e.g. St Mary and All Saints Church

  • The Methodist tradition e.g. Trinity Methodist Church, Broadwaters Methodist Church & Foley Park Methodist Church

  • The Elim tradition e.g. Jubilee International Church

  • The Pioneer tradition e.g. Franche Community Church

Stefan Klocker and Marketta Wessler have organised a full programme while we are there.

It will be an interesting visit, as this year four of the main Lutheran churches in Husum are formally coming together. There will be a single overall management body whilst retaining the four church buildings and congregations. There will be special celebrations on Pentecost Sunday, 9th June, in the Market Place (Husum Marktplatz).

We will find out more, when we are there.

Hopefully there will be a return visit to Kidderminster in 2020.
