SACRAMENTS AND RITESSACRAMENTS AND RITES

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark has two sacraments: baptism and the Eucharist. The Eucharist is celebrated at most Sunday services and at other church services too. Baptism often takes place during the Sunday service; both children and adults are baptised. In addition to the two sacraments we have three rites: confirmation, wedding and funeral.

BaptismBaptism

In baptism, we receive a blessing and we hear the promise of God to all His children... >>>

EucharistEucharist

In the Eucharist we have communion with Christ and hear the proclamation of the forgiveness of sin. >>>

ConfirmationConfirmation

Confirmation means "saying yes". In confirmation God's promise to the individual made at baptism is confirmed. >>>

MarriageMarriage

A church wedding differs from a civil wedding in that it includes God's blessing of the couple, prayers, hymns and Bible readings. >>>

FuneralFuneral

A funeral is a rite where we take leave of the deceased and listen to the Christian message of resurrection, hope and comfort. >>>
