As the nights draw in and temperatures drop, it is tempting to shut oneself up at home and keep warm - don't! There are plenty of events and activities between now and Advent. Do come and join us - and don't worry, you son't have to commit to anything! and if you are visiting Vilnius or just here for a term of so, join in as much as you can.

This is an annual event at which we host representatives of the other faith communities and diplomats in Vilnius as we join together in remembering those who have died fighting to secure the freedom we enjoy today. Refreshments after the service will be provided by the British and Candian Embassies.

Summer has arrived, as have Mathew and Jennie Steinfeld!
As usual, we have a number of members leaving our fellowship in the coming months and others away on holiday. We also expect many visitors. For those of us who will be in Vilnius over the summer, visitors included, we have a number of activities:
Every Wednesday: From 6-8 p.m. Meet for fellowship at the cafe immediately opposite the church entrance (the open air seating in the middle of Vokiečių gavtė). A chance for a drink, snack, meal, and lively discussion!
Saturday 15th June: Church family picnic at the Žirmunų beach from 1030 - 1400. See here for details
While we await the arrival of Mathew Steinfeld as our new pastor in July, we will be supported in our worship by Bishop Mindaugas who will preside at communion once a month (usually on the third Sunday of the month) and Pastor Tom Bower who will be with us for the four Sundays of April.
