THE CHURCH BERLIN

- Berlin’s Most Uplifting House Party -

Since 2013, we’ve been an ongoing celebration of artistry, music, and life, created with the intention to unite and showcase the various arts communities in Berlin. Our 'open mic sessions' are the only one of its kind in Berlin, to combine live vocalists, musicians, dancers and renowned DJs with house, soul, gospel and electronic music as a common denominator.

We’ve featured house music legends from Robert Owens, Jerome Sydenham, Erid D Clark, Katsuya Sano, Patrick Mason to internationally known musicians such as Kelvin Sholar, Dorrey Lyles, Onita Boone, Keith Tynes, to name a few.

Come get lifted at our next session, held at our residency venue Prince Charles in Kreuzberg Berlin, hosted by Andy Roda and Christine Pedersen.
