The Congregation of San Remo lives with the Christian Faith as a church with open doors and offers beyond Liguria, pastoral care and spiritual support during the various stages of life and in faith, to the residents of the city.

It is possible to meet with the Pastor and to ask questions, get more information from him. The leadership of the congregation is up to the governing body of the Church, which promotes the active participation in congregation life; but the responsibility is divided in a democratic way. The openness for cooperation with municipal and regional organizations and institutions, particularly in the cultural context, is very big.

The organization of Bible study meetings, excursions and various afternoon events, which are designed for both Italian-and German-speakers, allow everyone who comes into the community, to make contact with people who have similar interests. The community supports an Evangelical School in the Gulf, a twin group in Benin (Africa) and some projects with the aim to facilitate the integration of disabled people. The church service takes place every two weeks. Special forms of liturgy in church services, the liturgical structure of the year and the discussion of the traditions of Lutheran faith have a high level of importance, especially in an environment where the Catholic Church has the domination.

However the ecumenical relations are our labour of love. The commitment is strong when it comes to certain issues such as the support and protection of marriage, family and relationships within various denominations, mainly the Protestant and Catholic, and there can be consultation before and after the wedding.

In addition, the municipality of San Remo maintains numerous contacts with other neighbouring communities and their religious representatives and it is present in ecumenical prayers in an active way.
