On May 27, 2012 the Nordelbische Landeskirche joined forces with the Evangelical Lutheran Church Mecklenburg and the Pommersche Evangelical Church.

In Schleswig, Hamburg, Greifswald, and Schwerin will be officals residing over the Sprengel (church districts). The new Landesbischof will be elected in 2013. The Landeskirchenamt of the former Nordelbische Landeskirche will remain in Kiel. The two Eastern church territories will be divided into Kirchenkreise (districts).
