One building for 18 denominations in Hamburg 'harbour city'
August 24, 2009
Trier, Germany (ENI). Eighteen Christian denominations in Hamburg have embarked on an endeavour unique in Germany to share a single church building in the northern German city's new "Harbour City" development. "It's intended to serve the inhabitants of the Harbour City development, as well as tourists and people who work here, offering a place of silence and giving them the possibility to get in touch with God," Pastor Antje Heider-Rottwilm was quoted as saying by the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper in June.
