Life-Experience-Community – A village near Berlin
The village of Hönow lies close to Berlin and is approximately 750 years old. The village is characterized by contrasts between the village and the city, and between traditional and modern. The Protestant parish of Hönow needs our assistance with landscaping around the parish center and the conversion of the old village school to a parish center. Additionally we will assist workers on the cemetery of the village. We will be working 6 hours per day, for example from 8.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. Of course there will be breaks in between.
Accommodations will be provided in the old school building. In our common leisure time we can visit Berlin or Potsdam, make trips to sights of interest or go swimming nearby. We will not only do excursions, but also do group activities depending on your interests and your ideas. We are happy if you bring with you games, songs, music, dances, workshops, topics and pictures. We are looking forward to your ideas for our free time and group activities. With your engagement our afternoons and evenings will be a great experience for all of us.
