Christmas inside the Church


Danish/Canadian Flags

The Danish Lutheran Church in Toronto was founded in 1957, with the help of DKU, (Dansk Kirke i Udlandet - Danish Church Abroad). The Danish Lutheran Church in Toronto is quite young compared to the many 800 year old churches in Denmark. But this church is different. It is more than a church. For many Danish immigrants and families who have worshipped in the Danish Lutheran Church, who have been baptized, confirmed and married here, who have had funeral services for their lost family members and friends and who have sung, danced, worked and shared meals together - it has been a way of maintaining and nourishing roots transplanted to Canadian soil.

We all know how important the roots are for growth and well-being, and therefore we pass on the traditions and customs which we value to the next generations. Although the Danish language is essential to our church, we try to create the right balance between Danish and English so that all may feel at home.

The church has many activities, but the core, around which everything else grows and thrives, is the regular church service which is celebrated each Sunday. Let us hope that for many years to come the Danish Lutheran Church in Toronto will be here for Danes and their families.
