Exhibition explores the history of German Protestants in Britain

As the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation is celebrated across the world in 2017, a new exhibition '500 Years: German Protestants in Britain' explores the history of German Protestants in Britain from September at St George's German Lutheran Church, London.

The German churches and their members have left a significant mark on British society and Anglo-German relations. From King George I to Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from the German Chapel Royal to the Palatine refugees – the history of German Protestants in Britain is wide-ranging and captivating.

A series of events will accompany the exhibition, covering different facets of this 500-year history.
