Henrik True, Torben Ebbesen, Lars Skjødt-Jakobsen, Jesper Engholm, Frede Tramm, Marie True and Bente Holdgaard are the Danish priests who have presided in Brisbane’s Danish congregation for the past 17 years. They have always brought a lot of joy to, among other things. to visit older Danes from Danish society in the area. Today, the Danish Church is still running successfully in Brisbane, and we hope that it will continue for many years to come.
If you are interested in seeing old pictures of the Danish clergy in Brisbane from 1872 to 1940, take the time to visit St Andrew’s Lutheran Church, Wickham Tce (corner of Ann-Wharf streets), which was the site of the first Scandinavian worship was held in 1872.
On the walls of the church, which is the third on the site, hang pictures with brief descriptions. Also note the beautiful Bethlehem Memorial Pipe Organ, made by Danish-born Knud Smenge.
