Revd Dr Irene Ahrens
It was with great sadness we learned of the death on Saturday 11. May 2019 of the Revd Dr Irene Ahrens.
Since February 2000, she has been a much loved pastor of St George’s Church and she will be greatly missed.
The funeral service will take place on Thursday 30. May 2019 at 12.00 in St George's.
As a church community we would like to offer hospitality in the church hall after the service. If you can offer to bring a contribution to the buffet or help on the day (setting up and or clearing up) please contact us.
May Irene rest in peace and rise in glory.
WHO WE ARE
We are the Anglican Church in Berlin. St George’s is part of the world-wide Anglican Communion and belongs to the Church of England’s Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe.
The Pastor, Christopher Jage-Bowler, is English and the Assistant Pastor, Irene Ahrens, is German. We celebrate services at two locations in the city of Berlin: at St George’s Church in Neu-Westend and at the Marienkirche in Berlin-Mitte. Our language of worship is English, but our thriving congregation comes from all over the world.
WHAT TO EXPECT
St George’s is a welcoming, open and inclusive community with members from all age groups, backgrounds and circumstances.
We believe in worshipping God both in Church and out and aim to share a sense of God’s reality, his love for this world, and the beauty and joy of his presence in our lives. You are welcome to share in our worship, whether you are Anglican or not, and to receive the sacrament if you would normally do so in your own church.
