Advent Concert

Willkommen in Berlin hosted a celebration of Advent at St John's Evangelical Church in Schlachtensee – and the church, decorated festively for Christmas, was filled.
President Tone Korssund–Eichinger welcomed the guests; the parish priest, Michael Juschka, expressed thoughts on the Gospel of Luke that were read out in French, Arabic and Russian by members and friends.
The Kissi Choir, under the baton of Anita Rennert, as well as guitarist Vitaliy Shal, provided a wonderful, multilingual musical setting for the afternoon - in times of intense refugee influx, a gesture indicating strangers are welcome.
Many delicious cakes and cookies provided by our members, along with punch and hot apple cider, awaited the good-humoured audience, who, to end the afternoon, sang "Hark The Herald Angels" and "Oh, du fröhliche" together.
