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.
"Herr, wer ist dir gleich unter den Göttern?
Wer ist dir gleich, der so mächtig, heilig, schrecklich, löblich und wundertätig ist?''
Due to the school holiday, there will be no full children's ministry on 2nd, 9th and 16th October. The children will still be taken out for 'supervised play'.
We will celebrate LEC's 21st birthday in various ways at the services on 16th October.
Our monthly chance to enjoy time together over a meal: also October 16th from 12:30pm at the Gemeindehaus. Bring yourselves and some food to share!
Seminar: “Crossing cultures with friendship and the gospel”
Ever felt challenged about how to relate to those strange people in church who hail from a different cultural background?! This seminar is for you!
Richard Weston is the former director of Friends International, so has many years of experience working among students who are studying in a foreign country. He will be sharing his experience with us at this seminar on Saturday 22nd October, from 9:30am to 1pm at the AndreasGemeindehaus, and preaching at the evening service on 23rd October.
He describes the seminar in these terms: "A look at what culture is, how it functions in daily life, how it relates to the gospel and some practical tips on how to build cross-cultural friendships and to share the good news about Jesus with those from different cultural and religious backgrounds to our own.”
Anybody is welcome to come on the day but please register by email to email@example.com so we know what numbers to expect. If you require German translation please indicate that in advance when registering.
