Worship in St Mary’s Church of Rostock
Normally, the Lutheran Inner City Parish will worship every sunday at 9.30 a.m. in St. Mary’s. On
first and third Sunday of the month, Eucharist is celebrated. The standard liturgy in St. Mary’s is a high-church version of the Lutheran Order of Worship. Some elements are very similar to Anglican Services.
On 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, the congregation is invited to have coffee or tea in the southern vestry.
Occasionally, there is no service on Sunday in St. Mary’s or it is at another time, as the parish does worship in other churches, too.
Upcoming services should be announced on this page in the right opper corner. Our Worship Calender (in German) can be found online here>>, and is posted in our churches.
Once the service has begun, the main entrance will be closed. But you can access the church (for worshipping only) via one of the entries beneath the tower.
From May until mid-October, we hold Noon Prayer form Monday to Saturday at 12 a.m.
It lasts for about ten minutes. After the apostle’s reel on our astronomical clock, there will be some organ music, words from the bible and a short prayer.
Every Friday we pray the Coventry Litany for Reconciliation in the same manner.
If we worship or have a concert in the nave on cold days, some of the seats are heated. Heating is
provided in the first three rows of the front seating blocks, left and right of the main aisle, and in the first three rows opposite the pulpit.
From 1st Advent until Long Friday (except Christmas Eve), we worship in our heated winter church, which is the chapel in the tower basement (beneath the organ). Access is via the main entrance.
