Our linked Parish of Barby in Germany.

Since 1995 we have been developing a friendship link with church members in Barby, as part of the Diocese's link with the Diocese of Magdeburg in what was Eastern Germany, the former "German Democratic Republic"

Barby is a small town on the river Elbe in a predominantly rural area in Old Saxony. The church in Barby is Lutheran and Barby is about two hours from Wittenburg where Martin Luther founded his movement.

We arrange regular exchange visits for both Young People and Adults and as a result a number of personal friendships have now been made.

You can visit the Church in Barby.
You will of course need to able to read German.

Details and pictures of some of the exchange visits are shown by clicking on the dates in the menu.
