2004年哥本哈根华人家庭团契成立,是当年丹麦首都一个专为华人基督徒而设的聚会,也成为了今天哥本哈根华人教会的基石。哥本哈根华人教会是丹麦第一个、至今也仍是唯一的华语教会。当年的家庭团契在Frederiksberg市的一个家庭举行,活动包括查经班、分享祷告、儿童小组和聚餐。

In 2004 the Copenhagen Chinese fellowship was established. It was a Christian fellowship serving the Chinese community in the Danish capital, which laid the foundation for today’s Chinese Church in Copenhagen (CCiC) – the first, and until now the only, Chinese speaking christian church in Denmark. The fellowship took place at a private home in Frederiksberg, and activities back then included Bible studies, prayer meetings, small groups for children and social gatherings.

之后在2005年,我们开始在三一教堂副堂举行3个月一次的主日崇拜;到2006年才变成月定聚会。时而崇拜也会在教堂主堂进行。自2006年春季,我们也开始能固定使用Nansensgade上的宣教中心来进行查经等活动。

Later in 2005 we began having Sunday worship service at the Trinitatis kirkes Sognehus starting quarterly, then in 2006 monthly. Occasionally the service was held at the church itself. From Spring 2006 we were also able to use the missionhus at Nansensgade for regular bible study and activities.

2005年6月和12月,英国伦敦的中华基督教会差派第一批的短宣队来歌本哈根探访我们。丹麦团体Kinakredsen和北欧华人基督教会(SCCC)则帮助我们安排主日崇拜;伦敦中华基督教会(CCiL)和其后基督教华侨布道会(COCM)也透过固定差派短宣队来支持我们,协助我们进行城市内的传福音活动。

During 2015 Jun and Dec, we also welcomed the visit of the Chinese Church in London, which sent its first missionary teams to Copenhagen. Together with Kinakredsen and SCCC we have arranged Sunday worship services. CCiL and later COCM supported by sending regular short term mission teams to help with our evangelical activities in the city.

2005年我们也为弟兄姐妹举办了第一次洗礼。

2005 also marked the very first baptism ceremony we held for brothers and sisters.

我们深深感谢神的供应和带领,2006年8月哥本哈根华人教会正式成立,选址Amager。我们聚会的教堂属于本地的路德宗教会,并刚在2015年庆祝建堂一百周年纪念,是一栋简朴却富有历史意义的建筑。

Finally in August 2006 the Chinese Church in Copenhagen was established. Located on Amager, the church building belongs to the local Lutheran church and has just celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2015.

教会成立后,我们的第一次主日崇拜由来自台湾的高圣临牧师主持(2006年8月)。高牧师也是第一位在我们当中事奉(3个月)的访问牧师。

Pastor Shenglin Gao from Taiwan hosted our first Sunday worship as a church (Aug. 2006). He was also the first visiting pastor (3 months) who came to serve at CCiC.

接下来的十年里,我们迎来了更多的‘第一次’,包括第一位半职传道人、通宵祷告会、夏令营、诗班献唱、全职传道人等等。我们也感谢上帝的恩典,不断有弟兄姐妹寻见并参与教会、听到福音(有些人是生平第一次)、接受基督为他们个人的救主、接纳教会为他们属灵的家,并每年与教会一起在基督信仰上成长进步。

In the following 10 years we have seen many more “firsts” – the first part-time pastor, overnight prayer meeting, summer retreat, choir, full-time pastor etc. We are also very thankful that brothers and sisters continue to find and come to the church, hear the gospel (some for the first time), accept Christ as their personal Saviour, adopt CCiC as their spiritual home and grow in their Christian walks with the church every year.

十年转眼过去,回首我们由一个小小的家庭团契慢慢成为一间教会,确实满载了上帝的恩典,愿荣耀和颂赞归于我们的主。当我们在2016年庆祝教会十周年时,我们更期待一个又一个的十年,我们也能继续跟随上帝的脚踪,成为丹麦、甚至北欧华人的亮光与祝福。

10 years have gone by in the blink of an eye. To grow from a small family fellowship to a church is nothing but God’s grace. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2016, we look forward to many more decades of blessings to come and continuing to be a light to the Chinese community in Denmark and beyond.
