A little history about Christ The King Lutheran Church

Christ the King Lutheran Church in Surrey has been serving the Christian community of  Surrey, British Columbia for the past 60 years and counting.

On November 3, 1957, a new home mission congregation, Christ The King Lutheran Church, was organized in North Surrey.  Dr. Mars A. Dale was present for the organization and installed the Rev. J.T. Dahle as Pastor.  Rev. Arthur S. Olson was installed on February 19, 1967 as Pastor of Christ the King Lutheran Church.    Rev. Peter A. Hanson was installed as Pastor of Christ The King on September 26, 1982 and served as Pastor until 1989.

Rev. Gordon Charles Hoeflicker came to Christ The King Lutheran Church from Mount Zion, New Westminster in October, 2002 and served as Pastor until his recent retirement in October, 2017. 

Surrey Urban Mission Society (SUMS) provided meals and helped those in need in the former building.  They found a new home on King George Boulevard in 2014. Rev. Lori-Anne Boutin-Crawford was installed on November 19, 2017 as the new and current Pastor at Christ The King. Pastor Lori-Anne came to us following 5.5 years of ministry at First Lutheran in Vancouver, BC.

In 2014, the congregation made a decision to sell the property to Bosa Properties, and contracted Bosa to build Christ The King Lutheran Church a brand new church building. 

The congregation moved to a temporary location at the Dell Shopping Centre while the construction took place. The building was completed at the end of 2016, giving the Congregation the ability to have their Christmas Eve and Christmas morning services in the new building at 13388 104th Avenue, Surrey. 

Christ The King Lutheran Church is in the heart of Surrey, a fantastic location surrounded by Hi-Rise Residential buildings, minutes to the Surrey Central Sky Train Station and in the fastest growing City in Canada.  Christ The King Lutheran Church is equipped with 28 parking spots in our underground parking lot which can be accessed from the driveway located behind the church building.
