We are a team of theologians and artists who together test the church as a public space. Projects can take off and ideas can land on the Startbahn. We open the place for artistic and spiritual experiences as well as for social and socio-political projects.
Together we promote self-organised coexistence in the neighbourhood and create cultural and spiritual free spaces. The Startbahn is an alternative meeting place.

We belong to the Protestant Church, but we do not expect the actors to belong to the church. We expect respectful interaction with each other.

The Startbahn is a project of the Protestant Church District of Neukölln in cooperation with the Church District of Tempelhof Schöneberg.



Jasmin El-Manhy is a pastor and executive director of the runway. You can read about how she wants to shape the church here.
