COVID-19 Member Churches

The Lutheran World Federation has 149 member churches in 99 countries with 75.5 million Christians who have felt the effects of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic in their worship, their congregations and the life of their communities.

Following the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, churches learned to adapt to these unprecedented circumstances and continued to stay connected while staying safely at home. Thanks, often, to the technological skills of young people in their congregations, they developed unique means of providing pastoral care, diaconal support, and shared worship during the periods of quarantine and beyond.
