Jubilee Worship

For celebrating the anniversary of "50 years of the Leuenberg Agreement”

2023 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Leuenberg Agreement. This is an occasion for the grateful remembrance of lived church fellowship, but also for giving a new impetus for the future shaping and the tasks of the fellowship that has formed around this Concord. We are gratified that 95 churches of Lutheran, Reformed, United and Methodist character have taken the risk to meet present challenges as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Worship Order 50 Years Leuenberg

How can we celebrate worship together in the Leuenberg Church Communion? A liturgy working group has asked itself this question and developed a worship order proposal on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Leuenberg Agreement. This can be used for Leuenberg Sunday on 12 March 2023 or as a suggestion for other worship services that you celebrate together in your churches. According to this order, a jubilee service will be celebrated on 11 March 2023 in Debrecen (Hungary) at the scientific conference.

Liturgical Elements

Here you find recommendations of liturgical texts, biblical readings, and a song selection on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Leuenberg Agreement on the themes of "communion", "unity in diversity", "common service" and "joined at the Lord's table". Further elements can be taken from the also here attached worship order.
