Churches and Religious Activities in Germany

Expatriates living in Germany should have little difficulty having their religious and fellowship needs met. And the Internet is the best place to find locations of a church, mosque or synagogue closest to you.

Since English is the most widely used language in the western world, it is logical that there should be English-language churches throughout continental Europe, including Germany. Hence the many native English speakers here, especially those in the large cities and those near British and American military bases, should have no trouble finding a suitable place of worship. If you live near a base, a call to the chaplain's office probably will get you information on religious activities.
