Would you like to get to know us better? Startblock is where everyone new to the church can get to know us. Here you have the opportunity to ask questions, connect with others, discover your gifts and have a strong start in the church in every sense.

The next Startblock is on 23.03.2024, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Schandauer Str. 60.

Startblock is non-binding, even if you are looking to connect and are still unsure if Jesus Gemeinde is a good fit for you.

These are the topics of the Startblock.

  1. Welcome to the Jesus Gemeinde family
  2. Let’s get to know each other
  3. Develop your potential
  4. Find your place

We are looking forward to meeting you in person.

Small groups

Small groups are a fundamental part of Jesus Gemeinde. Church life consists not only of the big meetings on Sunday but also of the small personal meetings with people with whom you can share your faith.

We have small groups across the region

Umland West

Would you like to join a small group? Contact our office:


In addition, there are various interest groups that focus together on their hobby, passions or interests.

Ethiopia group

  • Prayer for Begegnung e.V. Ethiopia – Sam and Mellie, staff, children, country & people
  • German-Ethiopian community – space to meet, exchange, learn from each other, pray for each other
  • Bible study (probably fortnightly in Amharic, especially for Ethiopian brothers and sisters the possibility to experience house group)

Fridays | 6pm

Toddler group

Dear children (0-2 years), we warmly invite you and your parents to the toddler group! We meet every other Thursday (odd week) from 10:00 – 11:00 am at the S60 and want to eat, sing, play and discover the world together. Afterwards there is half an hour to chat and clean up together.

Every other Thursday | 10-11am | Schandauer Str. 60

Mom's Prayer

“Do not worry about anything! Rather, in every situation turn to God with petition and supplication and full of thankfulness, bringing your requests before him.” (Philippians 4:6)

So as mothers (and grandmothers too) we want to meet together weekly to pray for our children and families.

Tuesday | 10-11:30am | In “Großen Garten”

Men's group

We are a men’s group and always meet in the middle of the month to eat together, fellowship and share our faith. There is also always spiritual input, worship and prayer. You are most welcome!

Friday | 7pm

Wrench group

If you like to fix your car yourself, if you have a hobby car project in your garage or if you are just looking for community and exchange with technical enthusiasts, you are welcome to be a part of our wrenching group!

We meet about every two weeks to build our cars (or mopeds) together or to share problems, challenges and experiences of success. Concrete dates and meeting places will be arranged individually.


In this interest group we meet several times a year and present our written songs to each other. Our focus is to write new songs for worship and to grow in the whole area of music production. The group is for getting musically creative, networking with other amateur songwriters, getting musical and lyrical feedback, and being a place to find partners to co-write with. If you are lyrically or musically gifted or have songwriting on your mind contact Johanna Zeeh

Cool that you want to stop by the youth!

We love worship, want to know Jesus better, have enough pillows for pillow fights and should never be hungry, because we cook together every time. That’s why we meet three times a month at 6:30 pm at Schandauer Straße 60 (S60) with exactly these focuses. Once a month we meet in smaller groups – the Connect Groups. The Connect Groups help you to connect easily, to share personal things and ask questions, and to engage in casual conversation.

We are always open to new faces and are eager to meet you! For more information, send us an email to or a message on our Instagram page. You can also find a few more photos on Instagram.

Come by – we look forward to seeing you!

Offers for personal growth

We want you to reach your full potential, so we offer opportunities for personal growth.

Alpha courses

At Alpha, we embark together on a search for the meaning of life. If you are interested in the Christian faith or have only recently decided for Jesus, we recommend this course. Here, the questions “Who is Jesus Christ?” or “Where does my Bible come from?” are explored together. During the course you will get an overview of what a Christian believes. If you are interested in an Alpha course, please contact our office and we will be happy to help you.

Foundation faith course

You believe in Jesus Christ and want to deepen your foundation? Our basic faith course gives you the opportunity to grow in your faith. If you are interested in our basic faith course, please contact our office, we will be happy to help you.

Leadership training and mentoring

A top priority for us is to train leaders for the future. Not only because we need them, but because everyone should reach their maximum potential. We help with training days for beginners, mentoring for further development, and seminars for those destined for greater responsibility, even as elders or church planters. If you are interested, contact our office and we will be happy to help you.


Promoveo, Latin for “to move forward”, is the name of the Bible School of the Jesus Gemeinde. Through challenging theological and practical seminars, the Bible School is designed to help you move forward with God. Forward into a more intense relationship with God, forward into greater abilities to serve others and take responsibility in the church. We train leaders who enthusiastically and passionately lead people into a deep relationship with Jesus.

Activate+ Leadership Training

Activate+ is a practical training and goal-oriented mentoring program for church planters, for leaders of existing churches and for people who want to make a difference in the kingdom of God.
