Liturgy in the Lutheran Kirche

Evangelical Lutheran community in Georgia (Evangelisch-Lutherische Gemainde Georgien) was formed in 1817, when Germans migrated to Transcaucasia from Württemberg. Caucasian Germans have settled a village near Tbilisi and named Elisabeththal. In 1871 Kirche was built in Elisabeththal, in 1894 was built Lutheran Church of Saint Peter and Paul (Lutherische Kirche Sankt Peter und Paul) in Tbilisi. In 1937 Caucasian Germans were deported to Central Asia. Elisabeththal was renamed to Asureti, Lutheran Church in Tbilisi was destroyed in 1940. In 1998 Lutheran community has built Reconciliation Church in Tbilisi.
