Uns Tauflucht - our refuge is the name of the Protestant parish hall in Neuendorf.
The name was suggested by Anni Gau, a citizen of Neuendorf. "Our refuge!" Not only in rain, storms and cold, no, also a refuge in the storms of the times. From time immemorial, churches have also been places of refuge for people in need. The current debate on asylum rights is a reminder of this. The parish hall, which the people of Neuendorf also call "church", was inaugurated in 1987. Since then, it has been a popular meeting place for Neuendorf Christians and numerous visitors to the island.
The simple wooden interior conveys a sense of calm. Above the altar table, a robust crucifix looks into the room. The former pastor Alexander Neumann designed it as the "Man of Sorrows". The small chest organ is, like the organ in the monastery, an instrument from the Potsdam organ company Schuke.
On the east side of the room is a tapestry from South India, a gift from the former partner congregation Bremen - Lesum. An embroidered Lord's Prayer in Dutch, which can be read behind the chest organ, testifies to our long-standing ties with the parish of Ruinen in Holland. In the vestibule, a half-shell zee boat catches the visitor's eye. It is the work of the Schwerin model maker Kühn. Don't forget to visit the parish hall when you are in Neuendorf. It's well worth it!
During the summer months, concerts are held regularly on Mondays in the parish hall, which is looked after by spa pastors during this time.
