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.

to do so today.

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.
