500 Years: German Protestants in Britain

21 May 2017

Be part of it! The planned exhibition “500 Years: German Protestants in Britain” shall also include our congregation in Scotland!

Therefore Dr Diana Siclovan and Silvia Schmidt are visiting our service on Sunday, 21st of May and are looking forward to speak with you! Afterwards there are going to the “Heart&Soul2017” festival in the Princes Gardens.

German Protestant congregations have existed in Britain for almost 500 years. Little known to the general public, these churches and their members have left a significant mark on British society and Anglo-German relations. From King George I to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from the German Royal Chapel to the Palatine refugees – the history of German Protestants in Britain is important, wide-ranging and captivating.
As the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is celebrated across the world in 2017, this exhibition for the first time explores the history of German Protestants in Britain, from the 1520s to the present.
The exhibition takes place from 7 September to 5 November 2017 at St George’s German Lutheran Church London, the oldest surviving German church in Britain.
