Welcome

Since 1984 the Anglican-Lutheran Society has provided a meeting point where people can deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Lutheran and Anglican traditions within the Christian Church.

Membership is open to anyone willing to work and pray for the unity of the Church, especially between Anglicans and Lutherans world wide. Members are offered opportunities to meet for worship and study, to get to know one another better and to support each other in Christian witness and service.   

We hope that you will enjoy visiting these pages. If you would like to join the Society we should be delighted to welcome you.

 

The Annual General Meeting took place on Saturday 12th March 2016

in the Anglican Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, Rue Capitaine Crespel 29, BRUSSELS, Belgium.

The speakers were Fr Heikki Huttunen of the Finnish Orthodox Church who is General Secretary of the Conference of European Churches, and the Rt Rev Dr Robert Innes, Bishop of the Church of England Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe.

Lunch was provided by Mrs Marian Knetemann, a member of the Society living in Belgium, and the Bishop presided at a Eucharist where the preacher was the Rev Dr Jaakko Rusama, our Lutheran Co-Moderator.

Our next Conference will be in Visby, Sweden, 19th-23rd August 2016

It was advertised to members in July 2015 and within a very short time was fully subscribed.

The theme is 'Churches: Constant Yet Ever Changing' and as we approach the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 we shall consider ways in which the Church has always adapted so as to communicate the Christian faith in ways appropriate to different times and contexts, and continues to do so today.

The Theme is 'Reformation in a European Perspective'

It is being organised by the German Region of the International Ecumenical Fellowship for their own members and members of the Anglican-Lutheran Society.

Conference in Hungary, 12th-16th September 2014.

Everyone seems to have found it a very good and enjoyable event. The weather could have been kinder, but the worship, presentations, outings, leisure times and accommodation all combined to create a valuable programme. People came from 20 different countries, and representatives of a number of tiny minority Churches were delighted to be able to share their experience.

A brief report is available here.
