Support for Members
The Council uses some of its income to provide subsidies for Lutheran clergy who do not receive an adequate income and whose churches cannot afford to pay them more. The churches that receive grants are those with the smallest financial resources. They provide ministries mainly to persons who came to Britain as refugees, either after World War II or in recent years, and the members often have limited means to support the work of their churches.
The Council provides opportunities for Lutherans in Britain to learn more about their history, theology and church life. This is achieved by organising study days, lectures and other events, which are advertised among affiliated churches.
