ACB Renews its Life of Worship!

Join with the American Church in Berlin in preserving the rich musical heritage of the Protestant Reformation in Berlin-Brandenburg.

Since 2002, the American Church in Berlin has its home in the historic Luther Church at Dennewitzplatz in the district of Schöneberg. Dedicated on May 7, 1964 with 2,970 pipes, 39 registers, three manuals and pedal, this historic church also houses the second largest organ in Berlin that was built by the organ company of Detlef Kleuker. Throughout the first thirty years of its existence, the organ was featured in many concerts and musical events. With the decline of the German congregation and subsequent lack of funding, however, the maintenance of this fine instrument has been neglected. The organ is now fifty years old and is in dire need of a major cleaning and refurbishment.

The congregation has accepted the offer of 44,625 Euro by organ builder Jost Truthmann to refurbish and restore the organ. Mr. Truthmann has also broken down the restoration into smaller phases to give the congregation time to raise the necessary funds. Phase I will repair the most immediate problem areas and include a general tuning. This phase will cost approximately 9,163 Euro including taxes. We have successfully raised enough funds to begin phase I. We would like to complete the project and are seeking to raise over the next three years 35,600 Euros. This gives us a target goal of 11,667 Euro per year.

Join with the American Church in Berlin as we preserve the rich musical heritage of the Protestant Reformation in Berlin-Brandenburg.

  • Phase I to begin February 2015.
  • Phase II to begin 2016
  • Phase III to begin in 2017 (500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation!)
  • Phase IV to finish by 2018

Christ's Hands

Christ's Hands

"Christ has no body on earth but yours,

no hands but yours, no feet but yours;
yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ looks out on a hurting world,
yours are the feet with which he goes about doing good;

yours are the hands with which he is to bless now."

Teresa of Avila.
