A heartfelt welcome

to the website of the community "Christusbruderschaft Selbitz".

Translation of the various pages is still in progress. We would be pleased to meet you on our website again at a later date.

"Communität Christusbruderschaft Selbitz", a Protestant order within the Lutheran church, was founded in 1949 by Mrs. Hanna Hümmer and Reverend Walter Hümmer. The center of the community is located in Selbitz / Bavaria. Today, 120 women and 6 men are members of the community. The tertiary community of the order comprises 100 persons, i.e. married couples and singles.

In addition to a convent and guest house, the center includes a home for the elderly and nursing home (Walter-Hümmer-Haus). These three houses reflect what the community considers as its mission: spreading the gospel, performing charitable work and prayer.

Moreover, Sisters and Brothers are living in smaller groups (convents) in various federal states of Germany and in South Africa.
