from bishop Alsted on Sunday 15. March 2020. Watch the video message from Bishop Alsted here

On a normal Sunday I would attend worship in one of the United Methodist churches in the Nordic and Baltic countries, this Sunday I have to worship from home as all worship services and church activities are cancelled for a period of time. Instead I will share a message of hope with you. We need hope in a time of social distance and serius limitation on everyday life.

ABOUT US

mapThe Nordic and Baltic episcopal area covers 7 countries Denmark,Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. We speak 9 official languages and use English as a common language.

Bishop emblemUnited Methodists hold to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith. We value the intellect and modern science, at the same time we see the Bible as the authoritative guide for faith and practice. Methodists recognize that the world is not always black and white. We are willing to ask questions and to wrestle with difficult issues, and we do so with grace and compassion.

Methodists emphasize personal faith, lived out in concrete ways in the world. We value well-informed and passionate preaching, worship that is lively, and small groups where people can grow in faith.
