Welcome to Potsdam!

Welcome to the Protestant Students‘ Community in Potsdam (ESG)

We are students from different faculties and with different backgrounds, who gather as Christian church at the University. We are on our way together with the Catholic Students‘ Community (KSG) and all our programmes are ecumenical.

We come together every Tuesday morning at 8:15-9:45 for breakfast (8:15 psalm prayer!) in our rooms at Gutenbergstraße 71/72 (in the backyard, entrance to the right side). First breakfast will start on 21.04.2020, but it can change because of Covid-19.

On Wednesday evening at 7pm, we share our dinner and afterwards we discuss subjects of spiritual relevance to society, university and our lives. These evening meetings take place in the KSG, Hegelallee 55. Cooking starts at 6pm.

Furthermore, we organize worship services and retreats.

Most of what we do is in German, but even if you don’t speak any German, you are still very welcome amongst us. Almost everyone of us speaks English. We are open-minded and always thrilled to welcome new faces.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our pastor.
