New congregations in Denmark are emerging from within the Church of Denmark. The Church of Denmark is Lutheran and receives state support for many of its activities. All the more unusual then that two congregations in Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest and University city, should have been established that are independent of the funding system of the Church.
Aarhus Valgmenighed and Aarhus City Church are both elective independent congregations within the Lutheran Church in Denmark. A third congregation working among young people will open early in 2011. Both Valgmenighed and City Church are structured around home-based cells meeting for worship and study. Valgmenihed has 700 members with a further 2-300 who regard it as their congregation whilst studying at University.
