Lutherstadt Wittenberg offers a unique setting for conventions and other groups from member churches of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF). Church groups will find a contact person at the LWF Center Wittenberg for input about programs and side events of training courses lasting several days. In consultation with the group’s leaders, staff can support the arrangement of the conference (theme, lecturers, accommodation, visits to Reformation sites, etc.).
For years, for example, the Diocese of Haderslev of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark has visited Wittenberg with pastors newly transferred to the diocese.
We also welcome interest from your church. Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Pastors’ Convention Haderslev Diocese, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark
“Annually, we invite all pastors who are new to one of the 203 pastorates in Haderslev Diocese (Denmark) to a four-day seminar in Wittenberg. There we work together with the LWF Center Wittenberg. Most pastors gratefully accept the offer and take the opportunity to get ‘back to the roots’, so to speak, in Lutherstadt Wittenberg. To this day, the history of the Reformation connects the town of Haderslev with Wittenberg; and the Wittenberg Castle Church congregation has a partnership with the Cathedral Church congregation in Haderslev.”
