The Kidsfest project is up and running since 2012 in Berlin. Our goal is to provide hope and to build futures, several projects in the area of child and youth work accomplish this in a accessible way. Furthermore Kidsfest Berlin is an official partner of Metro World Child, NYC.
At Kidsfest everyone is welcome and it´s absolutely for free. The program is oriented on kids aged four to ten, but as well younger or older kids participate regularly with their siblings or friends. The parents are also cordially invited to be there. The kids experience an action-filled program that activates, involves and inspires them.
Kidsfest consists of games, songs to sing and dance along to and a message with Christian values for the kids´ everyday life. That leads to a hope and a firm foundation in the childrens lives. Every child has the opportunity to win prizes and everyone gets a candy at the end – because no one leaves Kidsfest empty-handed.

Vision & Mission
Our vision is to see leaders, teachers and pastors raised up from all imaginable circumstances and being changed through an encounter with god. Then, they in turn will minister to the next generation.
The Kidsfest project is committed to providing hope and building futures. We are convinced that every person is precious and loved by God. Many children have never heard it before and that´s what we want to change. We meet them where they are and invest personally into their lives. We are presenting the gospel in a fun, accessible way. Thereby we are building foundations that lead to a hope, future and a responsible life.
We accomplish this in several ways:
- Giving children an opportunity to encounter God´s love through our weekly programs in their direct neighborhood
- Investing personally in the lives of the children. Children are precious and they should know that someone loves and cares about them.
- Meeting needs like child poverty, violence, abuse and desperation effectively.
Everybody is welcome at Kidsfest - no matter which Religion or Beliefs, Origin, Colour of skin or Gender. As an Organisation we are part of the Diakonie (DWBO) and therefore we stand for a christian view of the world. We understand our mission is to communicate christian values that build a constructive treating of each other. We don't invite to become a member of any organisation. Our beliefs can be summarized like this:
FreakyFriday is a teen hangout, taking place every Friday and you are cordially invited. We gladly want to get to know you and have fun together. Sometimes we cook, play games or do something we´ve never done before – your ideas are important to us. Certainly you know exactly what´s fun for you and what you don´t want to do.
You can´t always choose the nice moments in life and now and then we realize that even the things that make us happy today are fading. So we are consistently searching for something new, for something that seemingly stays forever. Have you already found it? We don´t just want to invite you for a fun evening, but rather to an adventure with God.
He is the one who always remains and who wants to bless you with eternal joy. Don´t worry, it´s not about going to church every Sunday or memorizing the laws from the bible. It´s an adventure and they are well knowingly not boring. When you are interested just stop by FreakyFriday. We always meet Fridays at 5pm at Lindenallee 1B, 13088 Berlin.
We are looking forward meeting YOU!
