Helping for the Reformation anniversary in 2017
The events during the Reformation anniversary year, in particular the Kirchentag on the Way, will only happen thanks to many enthusiastic helpers. On 28 May 2017 hundreds of thousands of people travel to the Festive Service on the meadows by the River Elbe, to the south of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. The r2017 team will need a lot of helper’s support. Whether as orderlies, drivers, logistic and general support: everyone can contribute their talents to making this unique event a success.
Like the German Protestant Kirchentag, the r2017 association is looking for helpers:
- for the Kirchentag on the Way from 25 to 28 May 2017 in Leipzig, Magdeburg, Erfurt, Weimar/Jena, Dessau-Roßlau and Halle/Eisleben
- for the Festive Weekend from 27 to 28 May 2017 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg
Helping with the Kirchentag on the Way programmes will involve the most varied jobs and challenges. They are as varied as the helpers themselves: checking tickets at the entrance, acting as orderly, giving information, directing traffic and much more. The regular working hours will be 8 h/day, and board and lodging will be arranged by the r2017 association.
Online registration is planned to start from October 2016. The registration and coordination of helper activities will take place via the German Protestant Kirchentag at https://www.kirchentag.de/helfen.
Support is also needed for the Confi- and YouthCamps. Anyone wishing to help out for a longer period with r2017 can apply to volunteer. Many hands make light work!
