Church service in St Michael

Guide through the service

The liturgy who leads through the service can be the pastor or a preacher
Our divine service essentially adheres to the divine service order G1
of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria.

But since there are always small deviations in the details from parish to parish,

we have a little guide for you through our worship service

St. Michaels Church in Gochsheim put together.

You can download it here and insert it into your personal hymnbook. Otherwise you can find it in the hymnbooks we have provided, glued to the front of the cover page.
If you do not understand something, please speak to the pastor or the lecturer or preacher about it after the service.
We wish you a blessed service in our parish St. Michael in Gochsheim.
