A podiumThank you to all who participated in the General Meeting on June 22nd. We decided to alow the Board to schedule the Annual General Meeting: it will likely be on a Sunday afternoon. We decided to spend money on cleaning and painting the outside of the church, and we decided to replace the aging parking-lot lights. Finally, we postponed the purchase of new chairs for the downstairs hall.

If your way goes by Victoria, we suggest that you check out the Viking Exhibit at the Royal BC Museum.

Pastor Saltorp Welcome

Hello—and welcome to the Danish Lutheran Church! I’m the pastor of this congregation and together with all the people who volunteer to keep this church going I would like to invite you to get to know us.

We started out as an immigrant church almost 70 years ago, and now we are a church with Scandinavian roots in a Canadian setting. We still speak Danish at some of our services and functions, but as many of our members don’t speak Danish, most functions are in English.

You may wonder what’s so specific about the Danish heritage in respect to being Christian. Mostly, it is a matter of traditions and the way we do things at the service and the social functions. But also, the theology has a special angle, mostly because of some particular church reformists and hymn writers we have had during the Danish church history. Newcomers to our church may find that our rituals and traditions are close to the original reformatory roots, but they also have a Viking ring to them!

We invite you to drop by our church and experience our beautiful church room and take part in our worship and fellowship. Check the calendar of services right here on our home page.

Birgitte Saltorp, Pastor.
