Words from the bishop:
We are now entering a new era for the Lutheran presence in Britain. The Lutheran Council (CLC), organized in 1948 to support Lutheran refugees in GB is still alive. After the sale of the student center (ILSC), just before we all were hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, the council is now in a position where it can take new initiatives. The Council is looking for a new General Secretary to provide leadership and management of its people, ideas, property and financial resources in order to support the CLC member churches and represent the Lutheran family in the wider ecumenical world in the UK. This is also an important position for the work of the LCiGB, and we hope and pray that we will be able to find the right person for this job. Please, let the advert be known to your congregations, and on your notice boards and websites, and please, follow the process in your prayers.
