The German Church (German: Deutsche Kirche) in Liverpool is in Bedford Street South/ Canning Street and is part of the German speaking churches of North England.

The North of England German Protestant churches are members of the Synod of German-speaking Lutheran, Reformed and United Congregations in Great Britain and come under the care of the overseas department of the EKD.

Services in German are held twice a month on the first (4pm) and third Sunday (11am).

Regular Groups include a Faith discussion group, Wirral Circle and a Toddler Play Group.

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 Lutheran.

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