The Anglican Church in Hamburg is celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2012. This website tells you what’s going on and how you can get involved.
We’ve planned a series of birthday events covering many themes throughout the year, including a high-profile concert series in our neo-classical listed building. You can find more information under ‘Events’.
The ‘History’ section tells you about the origins of the church in Hamburg, the first non-Lutheran church to be permitted religious freedom to practise public worship within the City of Hamburg walls, and its links to the Merchant Adventurers.
We need to raise funds to secure the future of the church and its important role as a spiritual home for English speakers in Hamburg, and we would like to give something back to Hamburg by supporting community projects. The ‘Sponsors’ section of this website has information about individual and corporate sponsorship. We also welcome donations to the St Thomas Becket 400th Anniversary Fund – see the ‘Donations’ tab on this page.
If you’d like to know more about St Thomas Becket Church today, please visit the church website www.anglican-church-hamburg.de where you’ll also find a link to our Parish Profile.
