The Lanka Lutheran Church is a Lutheran body that once existed in Sri Lanka. It was a denomination of around 5000 members, in fellowship with the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod since 2001. As a full member of the Lutheran World Federation, it was also in full communion with all other Lutheran World Federation churches. In 2009, it had 5,324 baptized members.
Today the Lanka Lutheran Church has become the Ceylon Evangelical Lutheran Church, which is a full member of the International Lutheran Council.
