Membership of the Danish Church in London
By signing up for membership, you are helping to ensure that there will be a Danish church in London in the future for you and your family and the approximately 50,000 Danes in Greater London.
Folkekirken in Denmark is run with the help of church taxes, membership comes into effect when you are baptised. It is different with the church here in London. Here you only become a member when you have signed up for membership. The membership fee for the Danish Church in London is considerably lower than the church tax in Denmark.
The church is for everyone, and we hope that you and your family have had good experiences in the church in one of our many activities, which means that you will want to sign up for membership.
