"The first step has been difficult but, once you are here, you feel well. Many thanks for the warm, regular, healthy meals we have all together. Many fates come together here, and all are treated the same way." this is what a guest wrote in the journal of the Vesperkirche - an encouragement for everybody to re-open this quite different temporary restaurant also next year in the Pauluskirche.
"Together at the same table" - this is the motto of the Vesperkirche. Pastor Markus A. Grapke underlines "Eating all together is important. Anybody can come, regardless of the thickness of the purse".
About 300 meals and guests daily during 29 days make about 9000 food portions that are served every year at the tables by voluntary helpers in a loving atmosphere. Pastor Grapke knows that the guests appreciate this: "Enthusiasm, solidarity, discussions, commitment, community, encounters... and all this during a good meal!" He is pleased that the Kübler Group is supporting this initiative right from the start and still counts, year after year, among the faithful donors.
