Ipswich Lutheran Church, (founded in 2001) is made up of 3x church locations in Ipswich: Bethany, Raceview (School site); Grace, Riverview and St. John’s, Ipswich Central. Our community of witness and service also includes Bethany Lutheran Primary School and 2x charity stores: Caring Corner, Riverview and the Bargain Centre, Ipswich Central.
Our church’s mission is ‘To know Christ and make Christ known’, and so our ministry and mission is helping the people of our community to know the love of Jesus Christ, and then make that love come to life as we make Christ known: to our community, to our city and around the world. We do this through our various ministries and mission activities within our local community, and also through our partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Myanmar.
We are blessed to have 2 young and energetic pastors: Rev. Ben Hentschke (Lead Pastor) and Rev. Roelof Buitendag (Associate Pastor) who were installed into their roles at the beginning of 2018. Their passion and exuberance helps the church to embrace change as we move into the future God is calling to us within our city.
