The Night Café is looking for you !

Without a place to live in winter? The homeless chaplaincy is urgently looking for support for the "Night Café".

For the people without a home living on the streets in Cologne, the nights in winter will be brutally hard. That is why the pastoral care for homeless people in Cologne is organising the "Night Café" from now until March 2023: Every night, homeless people can spend the night in the warmth of a church parish.

For the nights from Thursday to Friday, this offer takes place, for example, in the church for homeless people ("Gubbio") Ulrichgasse 27-29, 50678 Cologne.

For this and also for the other nights we are urgently looking for helpers (18 years and older).

The task: Reception of the homeless around 9 pm, offering a small snack, overnight stay in the church or community centre, offering breakfast, closing the church/centre around 8 am. During this engagement you will have an amazingly positive and new experience.

If you would like to help, please contact Sister Christina at or call 0173/ 5709617.

On Thursday, 9 November, there will also be a Zoom meeting at 6 p.m., where you will get more information about the field of activity, experiences and impressions of the last years and can ask your questions.

You can register for this at the Mentorat here

Your KHG Team 

Theatre Workshop

Do you fancy some stage air, a break from the stress of university and nice people? Then come along and get to know the world of the stage with theatre teacher Maria Mock.

How does it feel to be someone completely different? And how does acting work in general?
Together we slip into new roles, improvise and invent small scenes. All this without long text swotting.

Try it out from the 29. September – 01. October 2022

THU/FR/SAT each from 10am to 3pm30

Workshop für Student:innen in den Räumlichkeiten der KHG – Berrenrather Strasse 127 – 50937 Köln

Save and share food

At the KHG, we would like to do something together with you against throwing away food and have set up a system for collecting and handing out food, the so-called FairTeiler, which was later taken over by Foodsharing.

This is a permanently installed cupboard and fridge where you can deposit and collect food during our opening hours.

Both are clearly visible directly in the entrance area of our building (Berrenrather Str. 127) and are open to all people who would like to use them as an offer for food sharing. We would be happy to have committed helpers who would join us in keeping the cupboard clean.

Please contact us at:

If you want to find out more about the idea of the FoodSharing, you can read more here.
