Congregation of St Mary's (St-Mary-Le-Savoy) with St George's
The parish of St Marien – founded in 1694 – is the second oldest German parish in the UK. In the 1990s, St Marien merged with the parish of St George and the care of the German Lutheran St George's church was passed to the Historic Chapels Trust. Over the centuries, the community was at home in various church buildings.
Today the church of St Marien mit St Georg is close to St Pancras and Kings Cross. It is located in the basement of the International Lutheran Student Centre, in an attractively designed worship room.
An extensive renovation was carried out in 2021 and our church is now being established as a Lutheran Hub, hosting the Student Chaplaincy of the Lutheran Council as well as other groups, communities and conferences.
Our church services are being accompanied on the organ by the internationally renowned concert organist Richard Brasier.
Richard is also a great supporter of the historic Walcker-Organ at
St. Georges. In this video he expertly introduces this great instrument to us.
