What does a church service look like?
Our church services last for about 90 minutes. The first half hour we spend worshiping God with contemporary music. Praise and worship play an important role in our church services which are filled with joy and liveliness. When we sing and pray to God we can experience Him in a personal way. The song lyrics are projected by LCD projector.
Some important announcements are followed by the sermon that is relevant to daily life. After our church service there is the possibility to talk and build relationships.
Every Sunday there is a church service at 9:30 a.m. as well as at 11:30 a.m.! We are looking forward to your visit!

If you’ve brought children with you, there is a special program for them during the sermon. In the first church service at 9:30 a.m. there is a Sunday school for kids. In the second service at 11:30 a.m. we offer child care. In Sunday school there are three groups:

What is going on during the week?
During the week, we gather in so-called cell groups. These groups are small gatherings of people in Graz and nearby, mostly in private homes or at church. There we read the Bible together, share our thoughts about the texts read, pray together and support each other.
