Bishop Lester's message
Welcome to the Victorian Tasmanian District of the Lutheran Church of Australia. Our District includes Congregations, Schools, Camps, Aged Care Centres and a Community Store. There are around 8,000 baptized members across Victoria and Tasmania, worshipping in a variety of congregational settings across 42 parishes.
Our members are from all walks of life, and each congregation has it's own identity. Yet we are still one under Christ, and our understanding that it is '..because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. (Eph 2:4-5).'
The District Office staff support the congregations, schools, and other entities to carry out their mission and ministry. If you cannot find the information you are looking for on the website please call the office on 03 9236 1200.
