Barbara Merkes

barbaraChurchwarden for Cologne Congregation - Barbara is one of our home grown German members.  She spent 12 months at a boarding school in Harrogate, Yorkshire, where she developed a taste for many things British.  Barbara lives in a leafy area in Bonn and in addition to being a Warden, she coordinates the concerts throughout the year at All Saints.  Barbara also ensures that our events are locally publicised through other organisations and in the local press. Barbara is very committed to our community and church and with plenty of enthusiasm and ideas, she enjoys organising task teams to manage cleaning the church and hosting the concerts, among other things.  Barbara’s love of music led her into coordinating the concerts. Barbara was attracted to her roles in our community so that she is able to give back to God, by making use of her talents and interests for the benefit of our community.
