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.

Bible Verse for October 2017

" So now, O Lord our God, save us, please,
from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the
earth may know that you, O Lord, are God
alone."

(2 Kings 19:19)
 

LEC Anniversary Sunday

We will celebrate our church 'birthday' on 15 October. We will be taking the chance to inform the church family about the opportunities and challenges facing us. So do make an effort to be at one of the services that day, even if you are just back from holiday!
It will also be the occasion for our monthly 'bring and share' Church Lunch, from 12.30ish at the Gemeindehaus.

Reformation Day Family Event

On the Reformation Day Bank Holiday (31st October), we are running an event for all the family to celebrate and reflect on the Reformation.

From 3pm to 4.30pm in the Gemeindehaus.

Do use the flyers to invite your friends!
(There will be elements in both English and German.)

Sally would love to hear from volunteers to help with this: sallyabigailnixon@gmail.com/ 0176-76380559

Visiting speaker

Nigel Styles is the director of the Cornhill Training Course in London, designed to help people understand and teach the Bible in tune with the way it has been written.

He will be with us for the weekend of 21st - 22nd October:

- on the Saturday from 9:00-13:00 there will be a special morning teaching session, taking us deeper into one of the Bible's more enigmatic books, Ecclesiastes.

- on the Sunday morning he will preach on the same book

Come along and find out how Ecclesiastes helps us understand ourselves, our world and our God. (Here is a little taster of what's to come: https://vimeo.com/66728868)
