Who we are

Levende Kirke is an international group of people of all ages and backgrounds. Some are Danish, some are living permanently in Denmark and some are only here temporarily. We are a big family where everyone fits in regardless of age or cultural background. The purpose of Levende Kirke is to love God, and make a difference in the lives of people around us. The vision of our church is to be a relevant, vibrant church that is connecting on a local, national and international level.
