At most German Charismatic churches the staff includes some English speaking people, usually Americans and Brits, and the congregations tend welcome English speaking visitors. Unfortunately, many Charismatic churches tend to change their address rather frequently. So we suggest that you contact the Church-on-the-Way, which is very stable, for information about other Charismatic congregations.
