Today, we have to bring you heartbreaking news…

Yesterday afternoon, our long serving senior pastor of Peace Church, Christine Erb-Kanzleiter passed away. Nine months ago she was diagnosed with cancer—and despite all treatment, all prayers and all care, her body continually got weaker and even more fragile, caused by the spreading cancer.


We are utterly sad, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family—especially Reiner, Nico and Jacob, all of her close friends, and all who now lost a companion in their journey of life.


We pray to find comfort in the faith that her life is now completed through the Mother and Father of all creation, the Good God who is the beginning and the end. Nevertheless, we are deeply sad and in grief.


A service of remembrance , a 'Celebration of Life' is scheduled for 9 September 2023, 13:30 at Peace Church United Methodist (Philippuskirche, Chiemgaustr. 7, 81549 Munich). If you join the celebration, please do not wear black.

    It’s breaking my heart that such a warming, kindhearted and sweet woman had to suffer for so long, but now she’s at peace - she’s painfree ;)

    I pray for her family and her close friends to heal from this terrible news.

    May she rest in peace ❤️
