Parish History

The Ipswich Lutheran Parish (ILP) officially came into existence on February 11, 2001. Up to this time there were five Lutheran congregations. To enable the Parish to form, St. Lukes Lutheran Congregation (Ipswich) decided to close in November 2000. We appreciate, and thank God for their sacrifice. St Marks Lutheran Congregation (Brassall) continues to remain a separate entity.
