About HIC
As an international congregation in Hamburg, Germany, our calling is to encounter God, grow community and live missionally. (You can read more about HIC´s vision and values here)
Hamburg International Church is a small but growing Christian community with a strong focus on children and young people. We are an intercultural, English speaking church with members from various denominational backgrounds, and are affiliated with the United Methodist Church
We meet at Schillerstrasse 31, in Altona, on the west side of Hamburg.

We warmly invite you to join us on Sundays at 10.30am for our worship service!

We would love to welcome you next Sunday. We hope to see you soon!

Pastor Edgar
Pastor Edgar Lüken lived and ministered in Africa for 11 years before he came to Hamburg in 2015.
Having served in an international City Mission Church in Windhoek, Namibia and after (literally) building churches in Malawi he comes with a deep understanding for intercultural challenges.
Encountering the greatness of God in the diversity of people is his passion.
He is married to Inke Johannsen and they have two children, aged 10 and 13. Edgar enjoys hot summer days, canoeing, vintage cars, football, glamping, and is a chocolate addict…
