The English Church Heidelberg
Part of the Anglican Diocese in Europe

From the Chaplain…

Dear Friends in Christ,

As a new full-time chaplain, it has taken a while for me to engage in various forms of ministries of this chaplaincy. I indeed deem it as a joy and blessing to get to know the regular worshippers and the friends of English church personally. I am looking forward to meeting many others in the days to come. As part of the pastoral ministry, I consider that keeping you all informed about all the ministerial activities in the church is also an important responsibility of the chaplain. So, I would be posting messages and news from our chaplaincy from time to time and would encourage you to feel free to participate and pray for the various ministries of this chaplaincy.
