Welcome to Immanuel
We are a community who seek to know Jesus Christ more fully and take bold steps to make him known.
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 have resumed in-person worship on Sundays at 9am and 10.30am.
Visitors and guests are welcome.
Pre-registration is not required, but please use the Check In CBR app on arrival.
Church at Home resources from the Canberra Lutheran churches can be accessed here.
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.
We have resumed public worship - you can see the upcoming service times below. There is no need to register to attend worship, but we do ask that you check-in on arrival, preferably with the Check In CBR app.
Livestreamed worship gatherings continue each week at 10.30am AEDT. Find out more here, or click the image on the right to view the livestream on YouTube.
