    CLC Chair Bishop Tor B Shares Munib Younan’s message: A Cry from Jerusalem

    CLC Chair and LCiGB Bishop Tor B shares Bishop Munib Younan's message: A Cry from Jerusalem, "I read this as a prophetic message opening a window for a alternative way to approach the destructive escalation of violence and hatred." "If only the world leaders would invest half as much money and energy into peacemaking as they invest in war. It is time to end violence over the Holy Land," says Munib Younan, Bishop Emeritus of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. Read his full message here. Photo: LWF/Romans Wong

Donating to the CLC

Donating to the Council of Lutheran Churches helps to keep Lutheran churches alive across the country for generations to come. We are called to pass on the foundations of faith to future generations and supporting all to live the gospel in daily life. Why not consider making a gift to the CLC so future Lutherans can find their home here in the UK?

The chaplaincy works through the 'virtual' community of the International Lutheran Student Centre. You can contact the Lutheran Chaplain for Students by email.
