How we started

In the spring of 2014 we (the Tarry family) felt God speaking to us about moving from the UK to Germany to start a new church.

Having prayed with our home church in London, we started making plans to move to Frankfurt (where Natalie was originally from). Things progressed very quickly and by the winter we had found a lovely new home. Myself, Natalie and our three young boys all moved to start 2015 in Germany.

In Autumn 2015, we began meeting with a small team in the home to pray, read the bible and eat together. Over the coming year we gathered more people (German and English speaking), and in October 2016 we started meeting monthly in the Historische Museum in the beautiful Altstadt of Frankfurt. In September 2017, we started meeting weekly in the ‘Alte Kapelle’ (Old chapel) at the Mainhaus Stadthotel.

God provided a new permanent venue in March 2019 in Walter-Kolb-Straße, Sachsenhausen (in answer to much prayer!) and we are very excited about the next season that he has for us.

Our Vision

When God first spoke to us about moving, he showed me (Simon) a picture of Germany with lots of flight paths coming out of Frankfurt (like the image you see in a flight magazine). He said that what we will start in Frankfurt would be multiplied across Germany, and we were to plant a church planting church!

 

He also showed me a map with all of the Bundeslände of Germany. I saw each state being filled with colour (like a paint-by-numbers picture). I felt that God gave me the vision to see a church plant started in each of the 16 different Bundeslände in Germany.
