Schedule of Worship Services – 2016
WEM Services for 2016 Begin in April – Earliest Start in WEM History
WEM worship services in 2016 will begin on Wednesday, April 20 at the Corpus Christie Chapel (Kapelle) in Wittenberg, Germany. This is about two weeks earlier than any opening service in WEM’s 16 years of providing English-speaking worship in the churches of Martin Luther.
English-speaking Lutheran pastors will lead all services. WEM offers devotional services in the Corpus Christie Chapel (Kapelle) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays beginning at 4:00 p.m. A traditional English worship service is presented on Saturday evenings, at 5:00 p.m., and held at either the Castle Church (Schlosskirche) where Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses or at the Town Church of St. Mary’s (Stadtkirche St. Marien) where Luther preached more than 2,000 times. The first Saturday service for 2016 will be held April 23.
For the past few years extensive renovations at both the Town and the Castle churches were completed. You will enjoy the renewed grandeur in each of these historic places of worship.
See the 2016 Chapel Services Location Schedule below.
Weekday English Chapel Services are held every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 4:00 to 4:30 pm in the Corpus Christi Chapel.
