Welcome to the Lutheran Church in Great Britain ...

We are a growing church, with people from all parts of the world worshipping in our congregations.

We welcome in our midst all those who want to explore their faith and find a worshipping community.

As Lutherans we believe that we are saved by the grace of God and invited to gather around the Word of God and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.

 Press Release: the Porvoo celebration, 14th June

Press release: Celebration of Full Communion between Church of England and Lutherans in Britain 

The Bishop of London, Dr Richard Chartres KCVO, and the Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Great Britain, Dr Martin Lind, shared in a service of the Holy Eucharist to give thanks  for, and celebrate, the full communion between the Church of England and the Lutheran Church in Great Britain (LCiGB). The relationship between the churches is a consequence of the signing of the Porvoo Agreement by Bishop Lind on behalf of the LCiGB in September 2014 in York.

The service was held on 14 June at St Mary at Hill, a Church of England parish in London, at which St Anne's Lutheran Church, a congregation of the LCiGB, conducts regular worship. The rector of St Mary-at-Hill, the Revd Prebendary Rose Hudson-Wilkin, and the priest-in-charge of St Anne's, the Revd Eliza Zikmane, were also involved in leading the worship.

The Porvoo Communion, formally established in 1996, acknowledges and promotes visible communion among the signatory churches. The Communion now includes the national Lutheran churches of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden, the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church Abroad and the Lutheran Church in Great Britain. The Anglican churches in the Communion are those in England, Ireland, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Wales.

 Information about the Porvoo Communion is available at www.porvoocommunion.org

LCiGB Signs Porvoo Agreement

On Friday, 19 September 2014, I signed the document stating that our Lutheran Church in Great Britain now is a full member of the Porvoo Communion.  It all happened in the chapel in Bishopthorpe, the Palace of the Archbishop of York. The chapel was crowded with people as it is a rather small chapel.  More
