Welcome

Since 1984 the Anglican-Lutheran Society has provided a meeting point where people can deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Lutheran and Anglican traditions within the Christian Church.

Membership is open to anyone willing to work and pray for the unity of the Church, especially between Anglicans and Lutherans world wide. Members are offered opportunities to meet for worship and study, to get to know one another better and to support each other in Christian witness and service.   

We hope that you will enjoy visiting these pages. If you would like to join the Society we should be delighted to welcome you.

Our last International Conference took place in Visby, Sweden, from 19th-23rd August 2016

The theme was 'Churches: Constant Yet Ever Changing' and we considered ways in which the Church has always adapted so as to communicate the Christian faith in ways appropriate to different times and contexts, and some of the ways in which it might need to do so today.

It was a wonderful event and a full account can be found on the Conferences page
