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.

Holy Communion

We believe Holy Communion is a special meal for baptised people who trust in Jesus as their only Saviour, are sorry for their sins, and wish 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 special way through our trust in his words. Through this holy meal, Jesus gives us forgiveness, healing, new life and salvation to sustain us in faith. If you also trust these things together with us (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 each 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.
