Welcome to the website of the German-speaking Congregations in Scotland and North-east England.

We see our website as a bridge (German: Brücke) from us to you. The name also echoes the “Brückenbrief” (literally “bridge letter”), the magazine of our parish. Furthermore you will find all the locations where we have congregations or preaching stations represented through bridges.

Whether you are already a member of one of our congregations, new to the area, or planning a future visit, this website will give you access to information on current services, events and news background information about us and our parish; and links to other useful church, social and cultural websites.

Our parish stretches from Middlesbrough in England, to Aberdeen in Scotland. You can find information about our individual congregations and preaching stations in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Middlesbrough and Newcastle. Since the Corona pandemic we also have an Online Church, e.g. here at our YouTube-Channel!

For further information about our parish, please read some of the recent extracts from our church magazine. Or contact one of our ministers for the region, Pastors Thomas and Verena Jantzen, who are based in Edinburgh. Have a look at our Facebook Pages for Newcastle and for Scotland!

We hope to welcome you in person at one of our congregations soon.
