We are a circuit of three congregations: Chemnitz-Erlöserkirche, Flöha and Augustusburg. Chemnitz is the largest congreagtion on the circuit with approximately 80-100 in attendance on Sundays. We have many young families and a lively children's and youth work. In Flöha we have between 30-50 people worshipping on Sundays. Our Flöha congregation is enriched by some Russian-German immigrants who have become an important part of our congregation. In 2004 we dedicated our new community church in Augustusburg after a two year building and renovation project. On Sundays 15-25 people attend worship in our beautiful new church premises. The 'Crossroads-Cafe is also an integral part of our work and mission in Augustusburg.
The circuit is served by a dedicated team of volunteers led by the pastoral team. Rev. Albrecht Weissbach, has been ministering on the circuit since 2013. Rev. Marcel Tappert lives in Flöha. He has been ministering on the circuit since September 2012.
Our motto on the circuit is: "Let's do life together!"...together with God, and together with each other. So, if you are in the neighbourhood, we would be delighted to welcome you to worship with us. We hope this website helps answer some of your questions, but please do feel free to contact us if we can be of any further assistance.

The English Language Fellowship is held once a month in Chemnitz, usually on the third Sunday of the month. The style is very relaxed and informal. Most of those attending are German students at school or university who are glad to worship God and hopefully improve their English at the same time!
