A welcome to stay with us!
Bari is not an independent community yet, but has an Evangelization project with the goal of creating a community for numerous Evangelical Lutheran Christians in Puglia. Until then, there is a mixed group of Bari-Puglia, which belongs to the municipality of Naples.
The head of the project is a retired pastor, Kirsten Thiele. He works together with two men and women from the community as “provisional church leadership.” This group has no legal decision-making power, but it brings together many ideas and enthusiasm to the Evangelical Lutheran Christians in Puglia.
The community welcomes everyone who has interest in our programs; there is easy access to ecumenism.
There are numerous activities in the community:
Once a month there is a bilingual (German and Italian) church service in the Waldensian Church of Bari, and every second month a church service for children.
There are two groups with the aim of discussing biblical-theological topics. One of the groups only for women and it is part of the “Women’s NetWork” of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Italy.
Additionally there are seasonal activities: at Easter time in 2012, for example we had an Easternight church service in the open air, and we had combined trips as well.
For further information Pastor Kirsten Thiele is at your disposal.
We look forward to meeting you!
