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 March 2017

"Der Dieb kommt nur, um zu stehlen,
zu töten und zu verderben; ich bin gekommen,
damit sie das Leben haben und es im Überfluß haben."
 
(Johannes 10,10)

 

Lent courses

During March this year, we will gather centrally for various courses on the theme "Confidence in the gospel".

The aim is to understand the gospel more clearly, and to be better equipped for sharing it with others.
 
Wednesday 1st March is Midweek Together; after that, the Lent courses will run each Wednesday in March at 7.30pm in the Gemeindehaus (8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th March).

The first half an hour will be spent praying as homegroups.
 
Please see the separate flyer for details - (TBA)

Archdeacon's visit

Our diocese is broken up into 7 archdeaconries, for each of which an Archdeacon has responsibility. The Archdeacon for our area is Colin Williams, who will be with us for the last weekend in March.

 

Safeguarding

Due to historic cases of child abuse coming to light in recent years, the Church of England now requires parishes to run training events to try to pre-empt this. A trainer will be visiting LEC to run seminars in each language on Friday 3rd March (evening, German) and Saturday 4th March (English).

Contact our 'safeguarding officer' Mayke Lindemann if you want to now more: safeguarding@leipzig-english-church.de.
