Leipzig English Church

A diverse church committed to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, worshipping Him primarily in the English language. We seek to love God in all of our lives, with all that we are—"with all our heart, soul, mind and strength". We do this in response to what He has made known of Himself in Scripture, with an emphasis on:

  • Bible teaching: We believe that when the Bible is taught, God's voice is heard and only this can meet our deepest needs.
  • Prayer: We aim to be a church built by God not man!

Officially Anglican, and with our roots in that denomination, we aim to be a church where a person from any church background (and none) can feel at home. Many people comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere on Sundays, and enjoy the blending of old and new, traditional and contemporary.

Please use the menu bar at the top to explore this website. We hope that it will tell you everything you need to know about LEC. But if it does not, just ask.
