Anglican Lutheran Relations

Anglican-Lutheran Full Communion

The partnership that exists the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada is part of the life of the Diocese of Rupert’s Land. Cooperation at the parish level is a living demonstration of the on-going rapprochment throughout our two communions internationally and throughout world-wide Christianity.

While our respective heritages are treasured, we have come to believe that our future is not defined solely by our past.

“We declare the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada to be in full communion”
(Waterloo Declaration)
