News from Dessau – reported in Folkweave – our weekly newsletter – 12 July 2014
This weekend the congregation of the Petruskirche, our partner church in Dessau, Germany will formally be saying farewell to their minister, Revd Gisela Seifert, who is leaving the congregation after 15 years to take up a full-time teaching position. Representatives from both Purley and Speyer are attending the service on Sunday and the celebration afterwards, where they will bring the greetings of all the partner churches to Gisela and her husband Manfred, also a minister, who will be retiring at the end of the year. And who knows, there just might be something else to celebrate later in the evening!
