We want to be a church where people get to know God and experience freedom, grow in faith, discover their calling and have a positive influence in their environment.

How did the Lenne Church come into existence?

The church was built in 2019 on the initiative of Gerhild & Jürgen Gütting, Nicole & Stefan Rapp and Melissa & Frank Lütkenhues. The first service took place on September 22nd, 2019 in the living room of our founding members Gerhild and Jürgen Gütting. Due to the Corona pandemic and the lockdown imposed in March 2020, we had to put the founding of the Lenne Church on hold. Occasionally meetings were possible, but most services took place online via Zoom. We were only able to take further steps in 2021. In March 2021, the Lenne Church was recognized as a founding congregation in the FeG Bund. On May 23rd 2023 at Pentecost we celebrated the first public service as an open air event on the Ahorn. Since October 2021 we have been meeting in the rooms of the Nachrodt Secondary School, which we rent on Sundays.
