Welcome to the North Tasmania Lutheran Parish.
We are a parish made up of three congregations in the northern part of Tasmania. These are Burnie, Devonport and Launceston. Burnie and Launceston hold weekly Sunday services and Devonport holds services fortnightly. We are a friendly and close community and all visitors can be assured of a warm welcome.
COVID is still with us so please adhere to social distancing and follow any current health advice. Mask-wearing is optional.
Lutherans are one of the largest protestant denominations of the Christian faith. Lutheranism began in 1517, with the publication of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, beginning the era of Protestant Reformation. In the words of the classic Lutheran summary of faith, we believe that we are saved ‘by grace, for Christ’s sake, through faith‘. In other words, there is nothing we can do to earn God’s favour or to gain eternal life. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ has won all this and more for us.
There is only one true God – the Triune God – who exists in three separate but equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit. He is the God who reaches down to man and through faith in Him alone are we saved.

Practising members in Tasmania are invited to join the Facebook group, which provides a means of sharing event notices, billboard messages, inspiration and in-house notes.
As the group is private, it is open to Lutheran residents of Tasmania and Lutherans who still have an interest in the church in Tasmania, via family and friends. Click on the icon above.
