In front of the church lies a forecourt, somewhat like the slope to the church in the old days. The ante-chamber is bounded towards the park by a slope of blackthorn bushes. In front of it, there is a shallow pond in which the various architectural structures are mirrored. A little fountain plays on the surface of the pond. The sculpture "The Bowls of Grace" by the sculptor Christian Berg was added thanks to a donation on the 10th. anniversary of the church.
