Welcome to Immanuel

Register here to join our next midweek Communion Gathering.
Each Sunday we meet to worship together in both traditional and contemporary styles, hear the Word of God, and share in Holy Communion (Eucharist). During the week, we meet throughout Canberra in bible study groups, evangelistic missional communities and for social events.
You can learn more about our community and where you might fit in by exploring this site, contacting us, or joining us for Sunday worship.
We're part of a bigger church family, the Lutheran Church of Australia. Together we want to be a place where love comes to life. We believe that God's love is for everyone everywhere and we want you to see how his love comes to life in us - and in you.
Public worship gatherings have been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every Sunday you can join us at 10am (AEDT) for a livestream.
Each fortnight we're gathering during the week to worship and share Holy Communion. You're welcome to join these times - you'll find out more and how to register here.
