St Thomas Becket, St Thomas of Canterbury, Anglican Church Hamburg
St Thomas Becket Church is an English-speaking church in Hamburg, part of the Church of England Diocese in Europe, worshipping in the Anglican Episcopal style, consisting of people of many nations and Christian traditions.
The parish has existed since 1612, the Anglican church being one of the first non-Lutheran churches to be permitted to establish itself in Hamburg as a concession to the Merchant Adventurers - the English traders guild in the City. The present church building, neo-classical in style, located on Zeughausmarkt, has existed since 1838.
Today the Church has some 70 regular worshippers of all ages and many nationalities. The congregation includes many Germans, who one way or another have found themselves to feel at home in the Anglican tradition.
The Parish Eucharist (Anglikanische Messe) is held every Sunday at 10.30. We aim to be inclusive and ecumenical in approach and practice. We welcome Christians of all nationalities and denominations, as well as those without religious affiliation who are searching for a greater meaning to life, to worship God, or to seek God, using the English language.
The Anglican Church Hamburg website provides further information about all the activities of the church, as well as regular news updates.
