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