St Peter's and St Sigfrid's Anglican Church in Stockholm is sometimes known as "the English Church", but is hardly that in terms of its membership. Like Stockholm itself, it is a very international community. On a recent parish visit, I had conversations with parishioners from Nigeria, the USA, Canada, South Africa, Kenya, India, Jamaica, Sweden, France and the UK. The Churchwardens come from Dallas, Texas and Chennai, India!
The international outlook of the congregation was also reflected in their generosity in holding a "retiring collection" to raise funds for victims of the earthquake in Nepal.
