Hauptkirche St. Nikolai

Hamburg-Klosterstern, Germany



Three child bishops are chosen each year to preside over a festival of over 1000 children from city youth and confirmation classes. The children put their issues, needs, concerns, and feelings on a Wailing WAll, and have prayer and closing worship, led by the young bishops. The project allows children’s hopes and dreams to be heard. The joint event, held with Wichern-Schule, with the selection of three bishops was established in 1994.
