St Anne’s…

Lutheran presence in the city.

A home to Lutherans in London.

Travellers come to meet, pray and praise God.

Inclusive hospitality.

An extended community of former members.

What hooked me at St Anne’s Lutheran Church?
Music was an important part of my family life, and I grew up in a Lutheran church back home with a strong musical tradition.
How did I get hooked at St Anne’s?
The hook was set on my very first Sunday when I:
• heard the female minister sing the Eucharistic prayer.
• read the English translation of that evening’s Bach cantata
while listening to the Sweelink ensemble – sublime.
The hook was sunk when I joined St Anne’s hospitality teams:
• the usher’s welcome table
• providing and serving refreshments
I caught the team spirit through working in two’s (or more),
and discovered a sense of belonging.
