Welcome to the North Tasmania Lutheran Parish
Pastor Stuart Kleinig has been our pastor for the northern parish, and ended his service with us on 31st July 2022. A call process is in place for a new pastor. In the meantime, we have lay-read services, with Holy Communion distribution administered by LCA-officiated laymen during the vacancy. We are also blessed with visiting pastors from time to time.

What Lutherans Believe
Please visit this link – Lutheran Church of Australia – for a comprehensive overview of our faith and practices.
We believe Holy Communion is a sacred meal for baptised people who trust in Jesus as their only Saviour, are repentant of their sins, and desire to live as God intends. As we eat the bread and drink the wine, we receive the true body and blood of Jesus Christ in a supernatural way through our trust in His words: “This is my body given for you… This is my blood shed for you.” (Luke 22:19-20) Through this Holy meal, Jesus grants us forgiveness, healing, new life and salvation to sustain us in faith.
If, together with us, you also trust these things (and are already receiving Holy Communion at your own church), you’re welcome to participate in this meal. If you have any questions about attending the Lord’s Supper, please see the pastor afterwards.
In observing Christ’s command to love one another, we’re to treat one other with respect and dignity. In honouring people, we’re also fulfilling our responsibility under the law of the land. The LCA is committed to implementing processes to ensure the church is a safe place.
