The ELCIC and the Eastern Synod

Trinity Lutheran Church is a member of the The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) which is a church with range of understanding with socially conservative and liberal factions. However, we are all centered on the Lutheran principle of emphasizing word and sacrament. The word is God’s message for the world and is full of grace and God’s forgiveness. We find that message in the Holy Scriptures of both testaments. In sacrament, we celebrate our primal identity as baptized Christians and we remember God’s saving actions for the world through Jesus’ resurrection to new life with Holy Communion.

The Eastern Synod is one of five synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, consisting of 182 member congregations and 50,000 baptized members. Eastern Synod is made up of seventeen Ministry Areas. The territory of the Eastern Synod runs from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Lutherans are found throughout the world. The Evangelical Lutheran Church In Canada is a member church of the Lutheran World Federation.

The Eastern Synod Office is located at 74 Weber St W, Kitchener, Ontario. Office hours Monday – Friday, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
