The German YMCA in London (Young Men's Christian Association) was founded in 1860. It is one of the oldest YMCAs in London and a member of YMCA England.
As a Christian movement we stand for respect and freedom for all, tolerance and understanding between people of different opinion, religion and ethnic background. In several practical ways we serve the needs of the community. We welcome people of different Christian traditions, other religious faiths and of none.
Motto: We will serve the Lord for he is our God. (Joshua 24:18)
We provide cultural and leisure-time activities, as well as advice, support and help for German-speaking people, their international friends, and the local community. We also run an au pair service and a parent-toddler group.
Members support the Association and pay an annual membership fee of £10. All events are published in a printed bimonthly programme and here in these pages.
Our doors are open to members and non-members alike. We offer the following activities and services:
We also arrange trips and sightseeing tours in and around London and coach tours to places of special interest around the country.
