The German Church (German: Deutsche Kirche) in Liverpool is in Bedford Street South/ Canning Street.

Origins[edit]

An English cleric came across a prayer meeting of some Germans in a disused ship on the River Mersey, a man was ordained and ministered to this congregation. Initially it was a German-speaking congregation in the Church of England, later to become a Lutheran.

This is the origin of the German Lutheran congregation in Liverpool, after using many different buildings it built its own in 1960.[1]
