“Diakonie” – church social service
"Diakonie" derives from the Greek word "diakoneia" and means "service", "help", "support". Serving and helping those in need of support belongs to the fundamental tasks of every Christian. Therefore, the constitution of the Saxon regional church calls the Diakonie a "manifestation of life of the church".
Particularly great effort is put into the fulfilment of the diaconical mission of the church by the “Diakonisches Werk” (Social Service Agency) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony. It operates numerous social facilities in the whole area of the regional church.
