Organization

The Patron of the Anglican-Lutheran Society is the President of the Lutheran World Federation, the Rt Rev Munib Younan. Until Rowan Williams retired, the Archbishop of Canterbury was also our Patron. We have invited Archbishop Justin Welby to become our patron and await his response.


       Munib Younan

Our Co-Presidents are The Very Rev John Arnold, Dean Emeritus of Durham, England (Anglican) and The Right Rev Jürgen Johannesdotter, Bishop of Shaumburg-Lippe, Germany (Lutheran)

They have enormous experience of ecumenical councils and commissions and we are very fortunate that both are able to give generously of their time and expertise in the service of our Society.

The day to day business of the Society is managed by our Co-Moderators, the Rev Dr Jaakko Rusama of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, and the Right Rev Dr Michael Ipgrave, Bishop of Woolwich in the Church of England.
