This fall, to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, a synod-wide goal of 500 donations, one for each Reformation anniversary year, has been introduced to the Bishop's Appeal: Get Off Your Donkey. These 500 donations will support and encourage the ministry shared in congregations around New England.
Welcome to the website of the New England Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America aka the Lutheran movement in New England. We are a people passionately committed to rolling up our sleeves and engaging with the vast needs of our times, as well as the complex questions that surround us. Lutherans are people of grace, God's grace. When we are at our best, we embody it in our words and our actions. At the same time, we make no pretense of being a perfect people. Instead we consider ourselves, "sinners anonymous", people who are deeply hungry for God in Christ in our lives and our world.
James Hazelwood, Bishop
New England Synod
