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 May 2018

 

     "If anyone would come after me,                  "Wer mir nachfolgen will,         

          let him deny himself and                       der verleugne sich selbst und

        take up his cross daily and                    nehme sein Kreuz auf sich und

                    follow me.                                                   folge mir.

      For whoever would save his life             Denn wer sein Leben retten will,

                    will lose it,                                          der wird es verlieren

         but whoever loses his life                              wer aber sein Leben

                  for my sake                                        um meinetwillen verliert,

                  will save it."                                          der wird es retten."

                    (Luke 9:23-24)                                                      (Lukas 9, 23-24)
