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 July to mid-August 2017

"Denn Esra richtete sein Herz darauf,
das Gesetz des Herrn zu erforschen und
danach zu tun und Gebote und Rechte in
Israel zu lehren."

(Esra 7:10)

Summer changes

Sonntag um Vier and the Evening Service
will be replaced from 9th July to 6th August by a single service in German at 5pm (without children's ministry).

The morning children's ministry will take a break from 25th June to 13th August inclusive, but there will be supervised activities for the children during these services.

The normal pattern of services will resume after the bilingual Schulanfang service on 13th August (see below).

Sunday 13th August

Everything will be a bit different this Sunday!

The morning service will be a bilingual All Age service for “Schulanfang”.

Afterwards we will be making an Expotition (Ausflug) to the Fenchels' home (Wannewitz 10, 04509 Schönwölkau) for:

  • a bring-and-share barbecue lunch
  • adult baptisms during the course of the afternoon
  • discovery of the lost pole

Lifts will be arranged from the Gemeindehaus, so please bring a car if you have one, as well as food and a swimsuit.

NB There will be no Sonntag um 4 or evening service!
