A Journey to God: See. Hear. Feel. (DE)

Begin a journey; a journey to sharpen your perception and senses for God. Make your way to God, physically, spiritually and musically. Our booth will give you an impulse on experiencing God – provide in the form of a self- involvement exhibition, a meeting place to ask questions, where you can exchange your ideas and experiences, or simply just to chill out. Feel at home in our living room. Make your way to us and make the booth come alive!

Hall 6

NAK-Unternehmerforum Westdeutschland e.V. (DE)

The career or studying choice is a big decision for young people. Do I opt for a career in a new discipline or take up a tried and tested career? Where do my personal strengths lie? What do I need to consider in my choice? What are the perspectives? A course of studies or an interesting apprenticeship? Question after question when it comes to career orientation. The NAC business forum will give the youth information about career choices, with and without studying, in many different competences. Digitalisation concerns us all. Short presentations invite you to join in the discussions. The NAC business forum is a Christian network of companies, managers and freelancers from all occupational groups. Its members meet twice a year at specialist lectures to discuss current topics. All who are interested, including guests, are most welcome to attend.

Visitors will learn what the church understands by social responsibility when they see the display boards, what humanitarian projects around the world are being fostered and how the church, through such institutional aid organisations, is promoting the common good, and how the relationship between mankind and nature can positively influence its resources.

Hall 6

ReligionsCheck (DE)

Religion provides the answers to the fundamental questions of our existence. It gives us purpose in an increasingly disorientated and complex world. It can also be misused by religious communities, sects and even by countries to deny freedom and exploit people. The presentation “ReligionsCheck” asks key questions about life and provides an insight into ways of helping life in the spiritual world of the present. Visitors will be confronted with large-sized displays asking religious questions, which should provoke them to answer the question “What do YOU believe in?” There is no right or wrong answer to the question, but rather the chance to think about understanding your own faith, your own traditional religion and to discuss with others about your faith. The presentation has been prepared by members of the Protestant Church in Rhineland and the NAC Western Germany.

Hall 6

Bible Box (DE)

This travelling exhibition presents placards with biblical writings in pictures and in text.

French district church (FR)

The booth of the New Apostolic Church in France is inspired by the French “guinguette”, the name given to popular taverns and cafés located in the suburbs of Paris and other cities, where people like to eat and drink. The “IYC guingette” consists of three units. On the theatre stage you can unfold in your creativity. It is joined to the pavilion of Switzerland. Adjacent to it is a boccia pitch.

You can enjoy a sense of French culture with coffee and a muffin from the bakery.

Wailing Wall (EN)

Perhaps you have heard of the “Kotel”: It’s 48 metres long and 18 metres high. It is to be found in Jerusalem and is more commonly known as the Wailing Wall. Thousands come to pray at this place each day. Many of them push prayers, their wishes or messages of thanks written on paper into the crevices of the wall. The wall symbolises for them the covenant of God with His people. Now you can take the opportunity to stick your wish, a plea for help or a personal message which moves you on our wall. You can equally intercede for others, take photos of their hopes, or take a note with you and turn that prayer and the wish of your neighbour into one of your own.

Hall 6

Garden of the Commandments: Your way (EN)

You will certainly have asked the question at some time about whether you are going the right way. Life will often show us later whether we have made the right decision, or have gone the wrong way. Whether you are going the right way in your faith is a decision which only God can tell you, and therefore it is a matter of concern to be aware of what God wants from you and on what scale He measures it. Over an expanse of 600 square metres you will have the opportunity to reflect and to answer the following questions: what is God’s will and do His Commandments still fit in our times? What do people want and are they interested at all in the will of God? What do you want and is God’s will still relevant to you? Follow an interesting path of contemplation and learn the Ten Commandments from a new perspective.

Hall 6

What do the German Federal States of Berlin and Brandenburg have in common with Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan? Correct!

Have a photo taken of yourself before the Brandenburger Tor, go into a Russian “Banja”, or discover the “Silk Route” which connects Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with Europe.

Do you like thinking outside the box and answering challenging questions? Are you interested in looking for things and trying to find hidden clues, so that you can escape from the room? The rooms are full of puzzles, secret hiding places and strange things. You have to find the pieces of the puzzle and put them together. The puzzle can’t be solved on your own. There is only a chance when you are together with someone else. We haven’t only laid the room out; we have also especially built it, for you to find many surprises.
