History Outline

In the beginning of the 1970’s, some young and newly converted christians met in the premises of the Inter-Mission in Hannover. Their goal was to reach people with the gospel, especially disadvantaged groups. They established a tearoom in the Goethestraße, where a lot of people gathered within a short period. Many of those gave their lives to Jesus, others were called into missionary and evangelical ministries, also outside of Hannover and Germany.

Eventually, in 1986 a church emerged from the tearoom ministry (called „Jesus-Treff“ which means „Jesus hangout“) and moved into premises in the Herrenstraße/Odeonstraße. The church was named Koinonia (the greek word for fellowship) and resides there until this day. Since the 70’s, there has been casual contact to the Calvary Chapel movement, which intensified in the beginning of the 90’s. Lastly, in 1992, the church joined the movement.

The congregation grew steadily and in 2007, the rooms finally were too small. After many viewings and a period of two services on Sunday, we moved our service into a nearby cinema. But in 2017 we rented additional rooms in the Herrenstraße so we can have one service in our own rooms again.
