Dear friends of the network, dear site visitors, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a unique and extraordinary good year of the Netzwerk Apostolische Geschichte e.V. in the are of church history, despite all limitations and challenges!
Throughout the year, virtual and hybrid lecture events and discussion groups have accompanied us, some very small and personal, some with five-digit view counts on YouTube. Even if on-site events were hardly possible, some things were, and we were happy about that, too.
We were able to buy our building in Brockhagen in September – around 75,000 euros in donations and funding made this possible! A huge amount for us, which we would never have expected.
And in the same month, despite sometimes challenging conditions, we held our regular annual meeting on church history in Dresden with various lectures and events.
In this context we were also able to recruit two young people as additions to the board of the Netzwerk Apostolische Geschichte e.V. They bring their energy, motivation and experience into the board and the whole Netzwerk.
Finally, we are pleased to report a solid and continuous growth in our membership since 2010, our founding year. At the end of October, we reached the number of 150 members, thus creating a large supporter base and a really good economic foundation for the coming time. Furthermore we are happy about every joining of silent supporters and active contributors.
In summary: We believe we are well positioned for the coming years. And we strive to carry the tailwind of 2021 into the coming time. We wish you all the best, health and confidence in this special time!
