Hattingen-Witten invitation to interested German/non-German speakers!

19th June 2018

The Church District of Hattingen-Witten is our partner in Germany.  It's located in the Ruhr area, Germany's industrial heartland. The Diocese of Sheffield's link with the Church District of Hattingen Witten goes back to 1987. 

Julia Holtz, Superintendent of the Hattingen-Witten link district in Germany, issued two invitations at the diocesan conference held 14-16 June at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick. 

The first is to attend their clergy conference (keynote speaker on preaching using your body) at the Hattingen-Witten diocesan guest house on the North Sea island of Norderney from 24-27 February 2019. There are two spaces available and participants need to speak German.
 
The second is to attend the Kirchentag in Dortmund from 19-23 June 2019. This is a huge church festival with over 3,000 events, and over 100,000 people attending. There is an international programme, and you do not need to speak German for this. There are eight tickets on offer (provided by H-W), and there may be some help available with travel costs from the link. Accommodation would be with Hattingen-Witten church members. 
 
Please contact Rev Vicky Camber, Link Chair, vicky.camber@sheffield.anglican.org or on 01909 771101, if you are interested in attending either of these events.
