Our parish is 100% self-supporting and even the salaries of the clergy, for example, have to be paid for by donations. Our parish also does not receive the German church tax. 

If you would like to support our ministry financially, we would also be happy to receive your regular donations. Perhaps you would like to set up a standing order? Thank you so much.
