Visiting Kanaan

Take Time Out...

… from a hectic daily routine? Kanaan is a quiet place for prayer, with nooks and crannies named after Biblical places and events specially created for time alone with Jesus. The Garden of Jesus’ Suffering especially is an open invitation to silent prayer and meditation.

Group Visits

School classes and confirmation classes, seniors, students and prayer groups … all are welcome to visit Kanaan!

Please write or call beforehand for a group visit with guided tour across Kanaan to learn more about our every day life and the story of our community. 


Our weekly church service is held on Sundays at 9.30am in the Herald Chapel, usually with Holy Communion (using individual cups). You can also listen to the sermons (in German) on our Mediathek.

More information can be found under Events. 

Questions we are often asked

Are members of the public welcome to join you for prayers?

Every day at 3pmwe have a short liturgical prayer (15-20 minutes)  commemorating Jesus' Passion. On Sundays, we celebrate His Resurrection.

Thursdays 7.45 - 8.45 (German only): prayer for the most urgent needs in our city, nation and the world with intercession and worship before Jesus.

Friday 5.30pm Prayer of repentance and blessing for Israel.


Do you also do tours for individual guests?

After the worship service on Sunday, guests who are new to Kanaan are welcome to join in a guided tour.
