Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover

The Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover (German: Evangelisch-lutherische Landeskirche Hannovers) is a Lutheran church body (Landeskirche) in the German state of Lower Saxony and the city of Bremerhaven covering the territory of the former Kingdom of Hanover. It's the most important Protestant denomination in this area. The seat of the Landesbischof (bishop) is the Lower Saxon state capital Hanover. The Marktkirche is the church of the bishop.

It is a full member of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) and is based on the teachings brought forward by Martin Luther during the Reformation. It also belongs to the Confederation of Protestant Churches in Lower Saxony.

After Margot Käßmann's resignation as Landesbischöfin in February 2010, Hans-Hermann Jantzen (German) served as Bischofsvikar (acting bishop) until Ralf Meister's investiture as her successor on 26 March 2011.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hanover is a member church of the United Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany (VELKD), the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe, and of the Lutheran World Federation.
