A new church in Frankfurt

More about Nordstern Kirche
The North Star—which is translated in German as Nordstern—has always been a point of orientation for travelers. Because the North Star is one of the brightest fixed stars in the sky, travelers can always orient the direction of their path by looking to it. Nordstern wants to be the same type of orientation for people on their faith journey: a landmark.
Upon further research when naming the church, Stephan discovered that the North Star is actually a collection of three stars clumped together to form a trinity. This was "an added blessing" for him as he selected the name Nordstern.
Nordstern began meeting with a small core group at a local coffee shop in 2010, and they began hosting regular services in 2013.
