Member of Community Church Plant Team

European Christian Mission

We are a multicultural team serving with the Freie evangelische Gemeinde in Norddeutschland (FeGN). We live and serve in a working class neighbourhood with many tower blocks, known as the 'Dreesch'. We're also connected to the local FeG church in the centre of Schwerin. We are looking for new missionaries (inidividuals, a couple or a family) to join the team. We particularly need help with the administrative work for our 'Patchwork Centre'.

We live in and are committed to our neighbourhood. We share our lives with the people here and serve wherever we can, e.g. in the local 'Kindertafel' (which provides warm meals for poor children), playing football, doing music with children from the local school etc. Once a month, we organise a family event ('Plattenpraise') together with other people in our area, and an open air street festival ('Kepler Open Air').

As part of our vision to build a Christian community, we have renovated an empty building and transformed it into the Patchwork Centre: a community centre with a café, workshop and music facilities. This centre offers daily fellowship, meaningful occupation (everyone can participate in our activities) and a peaceful atmosphere. In addition, this centre could become the setting for different forms of Christian worship, which reflect the community around it. We see the Patchwork Centre becoming a place of Christian community and Jesus-like transformation.

Our greatest need is for an administrative worker at the Patchwork Centre. We're also looking for wider team members to join our missional community. To find out more about these opportunities, please click here
