Real life testimonies and music attract thousands in Germany

More than 10,000 people have attended “Life on stage” in Hamburg and Dresden. The mission week combines short musicals and evangelistic talks.

“A big evangelistic event? A call to the Cross? Will this connect us to the city or will it only polarise more?” These were the doubts of Detlef Pieper, a Christian leader in Hamburg (Germany) when the possibility of organising a big evangelistic campaign was first put on the table.

As “Life on Stage” finished, one year later, his perspectives had changed dramatically, he told Livenet.ch. More than 6,100 people attended the weeklong activities, and 240 people had taken a decision to start a new life with Christ.



Organised by 16 churches in the Hamburg region, the project was a “success” because all kind of people, “both people living in the margins of society and business people”, came together to learn about the Christian faith. “Many parents experienced how their children took a decision for Jesus”, Pieper adds.

THE PROJECT



The evangelistic project was first started in Switzerland in 2014, and consists in three short musicals which share the real life stories of people who have experienced the impact of God in very different situations: a married couple going through a deep crisis, a young woman with addictions, and a mother of two children with severe illnesses.

Every night finishes with an evangelistic message explaining the gospel according to the Bible. On Sunday, a special worship service closes the week.



 



DRESDEN



Days before Hamburg, the mission initiative had been brought to Dresden, with more than 5,700 people attending the activities from 28 October to 3 November. There, the effort brought together 26 churches of the Eastern German city.

Friedemann Schwinger, chair of the organisation committee in Dresden, told Livenet.ch: “Here in the East we are surrounded by people who have no connection at all to faith, church or Christianity. If they accept an invitation, that is already a big step. The more it fascinates me that so many realised, in these evenings, that their moment has come to fix their lives to Jesus and his Cross”.
