All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out╩ (John 6:37)


Evangelical-Lutheran parish "Terijoki" is one of the two Christian churches in the city Zelenogorsk. Main liturgy, including holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) is held every Sunday from 11.00 until 12.30 in the morning. Terijoki parish belongs to the episcopacy of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Ingria. Central cathedral of Church of Ingria is situated on Bolshaya Konyshenaya Street opposite DLT (market). Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Ingria inherited traditions of the Scandinavian Lutheran church. For this reason, the church has Episcopal administrative system.


At present the Episcopal office is carried out by Rev. Arri Kouggapi, who was elected a bishop by Synod of ELCIR and ordained according to the norms of the apostolic ministry in 1995. More information about the church of Ingria, one may get at: http://www.elcingria.spb.ru

In summertime, the church building is also open on other working days from 12.00 until 18.00. It is open for everyone so that anyone might enter and get private place for prayer time. In case if a man has got any needs or desire to make confession one may talk with a priest or his helper (deacon, catechist).

Besides Sunday Liturgy (Holly Mass) in the parish of Zelenogorsk the occasional rites and social work are permanently carried out.
