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 June 2017

". . . everyone whose spirit God has stirred
to go up to rebuild the house of the Lord"


(Ezra 1:5b)


Church Weekend Away

The Church Weekend Away is a great opportunity to grow up in the Lord and together as his family, so do join us. This year's theme is 'How the cross affects every part of life'.
As usual, it will take place over Pentecost Weekend, Friday 2nd to Monday 5th June, and we will be staying like last year in Engelsbach, Thuringia

We don't want anyone to be unable to attend for financial reasons (Acts 4:34-35), so do give a bit extra if you can, and do let an Elder know if a reduction would help.

Church Lunch

Our monthly 'bring and share' lunch: Sunday 18th June, from 12:30pm.


The Hickels will once again be visiting support churches in Australia, from 2nd June to early August. During this time, various visitors will be helping out at the services:

The children's ministry will take a break from 25th June to 13th August inclusive. There will be organised activities for the children during the services on these Sundays.

Normal service will resume after the bilingual Schulanfang service on 13th August.


There will be no Open Air Service in the park this summer. Instead, the Ev. Allianz churches are organising the service on the Markt on Mon. 5th June (during Church Weekend).
