Our Congregation

The International Church of Copenhagen (ICC) is an international, English-speaking, ecumenical ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, in cooperation with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Denmark.


On any given Sunday, our congregation consists of Christians representing 20 or more nations, nearly as many languages, and a variety of cultures and Christian experiences.

English speaking

ICC’s life of worship, education and fellowship functions primarily in English, as an attempt to be hospitable to people of faith from many nations and cultures who may use English as their second or first language. People of all languages are welcome, and more than likely, you will find someone in our community of faith who speaks your language.


“Ecumenical” describes the fact that we are a community of faith made up of Christians from many different denominations. While historically a ministry of the Lutheran Church, ICC is made up of Mainline Protestants, Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Evangelicals and many others, bound by the Holy Spirit in one Lord, one faith and one baptism. All are invited into our fellowship, and are welcome at the Lord ’s table of grace—there is always room for more.
