Membership of The Danish Church in London

In Denmark the church is publically funded through taxes, but The Danish Church in London exists only thanks to generous donations from its congregation and supporters. By becoming a member you help preserving the church, ensuring that in future the church will still be a cultural and social meeting place as well as a church for yourself, your family and the other approximately 50,000 Danes in Greater London. The membership rate is significantly lower than the church tax contribution in Denmark. 

We hope that you and your family have enjoyed visiting the church and taking part in some of our many activities, and that you will want to become a member.
