About St John Lutheran Church Mount Compass

Church Find welcomes St John Lutheran Church Mount Compass in Mount Compass, who engaged in a revitalisation journey enriching the community, for all their latest times and information including times.

Government censuses indicate that about 250,000 Australians and New Zealanders identify as Lutheran. In practice, though, the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA), which includes the Lutheran Church of New Zealand (LCNZ), is a relatively small Christian denomination, with about 60,000 regular worshippers. By contrast, the worldwide Lutheran Church, with just over 70 million adherents, is the second largest non-Catholic church (and largest Protestant church) in the world. In Australia and New Zealand there are 648 Lutheran congregations, 298 parishes, 533 pastors (including those who have retired) and 116 registered lay workers. Lutherans have been Australia and New Zealand for more than 150 years. In the 1830s small groups of European Lutherans emigrated in search of religious freedom. Membership decreased during World War 1 when the use of German was prohibited and many German Lutherans were interned. Numbers increased again after World War 2 with the influx of northern European migrants. Australian and New Zealand Lutheranism in the 21st century reflects the multicultural nature of our two nations. Today Australian and New Zealand Lutherans represent every continent on earth. Congregations of people from Asian and European countries contribute to the cultural diversity of our church, and increasingly we are also welcoming African people, primarily Sudanese, into our worshipping communities. The work of missionaries and co-workers among the Indigenous peoples of Australia from the mid 1980s to the present day has borne much fruit, and today we are proud to include in our Lutheran family around 7000 Indigenous people. (For information about current LCA ministries with Indigenous people, click here.) We are a culturally rich and colourful church. Although the LCA is a small church compared with other mainstream Christian denominations in Australia and New Zealand, we are disproportionaly represented in the community through our many schools, childcare centres and aged-care facilities, all of which have an outstanding reputation for offering excellent professsional services and Christian care. It is likely that the many non-church-attending Australian people who identify as Lutheran do so because of their association with a Lutheran school, childcare centre or aged-care facility.

Our Mission

Our logo represents how we see ourselves as two nations under the Southern Cross, created by God, redeemed by Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve the people of our two nations and the world. Our tagline, Where Love Comes to Life, reflects the heart and soul of our mission. In every district and department of the Lutheran Church of Australia, in every congregation and school, in every Australian and New Zealander who identifies as Lutheran, we want to be the place where love comes to life. In other words, we want people to see the love, grace, forgiveness and compassion of Jesus Christ coming to them through every place and every person in our church.
