Our Sunday services follow the liturgies found in the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. Our main Eucharistic service takes place every Sunday at 11:00 in our main sanctuary at Sebastian-Rinz-Str. 19, 60323 Frankfurt.
All our welcome at the Church of Christ the King and everyone is welcome to receive Holy Communion.
Please join us for coffee and fellowship after the service in the Undercroft of the church.
In partnership with St. Augustine of Canterbury in Wiesbaden, CtK is assisting with the bilingual Anglican/Episcopal service in Mainz. The service takes place every fourth Sunday of the month at 17:00 in the beautiful chapel of St. Christopher’s which was Johannes Gutenberg’s home parish.
The chapel is a part of the memorial church that was left in ruins as a memorial to all victims of war and violence. Join us for worship in Mainz!
The church is located at Hintere Christophsgasse 3, 55116 Mainz. This service is in-person only.
“JOYFUL AND EFFECTIVE” MUSIC – AN INTEGRAL AND VITAL ELEMENT OF WORSHIP AT CTK.
OUR CHOIR IS A GROUP OF 8–15 SINGERS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND ALL AGES WHO ARE UNITED IN THEIR LOVE OF SINGING! THE CHOIR REHEARSES TWICE A WEEK (ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, AND ON SUNDAY MORNING BEFORE THE MAIN WORSHIP SERVICE). EACH WEEK WE HAVE A DIFFERENT ANTHEM OR MOTET AND A PSALM (SUNG TO ANGLICAN CHANT), DESCANTS TO THE HYMNS AND, PERIODICALLY, GOSPEL SONGS.
If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact the church office, or speak to members of the choir on Sunday morning!
The choir reaches out into the local community and beyond. Choral Evensong has been sung in many local churches including the Erlöserkirche in Bad Homburg, the Justinuskirche in Hoechst, the Alte Nikolaikirche in Frankfurt’s city center, and the Benedictine Abbey near Rüdesheim. Listen here:
Carols are sung every Christmas at Frankfurt’s Weihnachtsmarkt, an essential venue for any local resident or tourist. Here the strains of “O come all ye faithful” can be heard through the scents of Glühwein and Bratwürste – everyone loves it. Other highlights of the year are the Service of Lessons and Carols during Advent and the Christmas Eve and Easter liturgies.
The choir undertook concert tours to Hamburg and Berlin, and in 2018 a very memorable visit to Ireland, where Choral Eucharist and Evensong were sung in St. Patrick’s cathedral, Dublin, and an appreciative audience welcomed them for a concert in St. Brigid’s Cathedral, Kildare.
CtK is very blessed to have many talented instrumentalists who often contribute to the worship. The piano is often used in the services, either alone or together with violoncello, violin, solo voice, flute or guitar. The choir itself is usually accompanied by the organ, but also occasionally by brass or strings.
