General Information

A Kirchenkreis (church district) consists of several deaneries (Dekanate/Dekanatsbezirke). A deanery is formed up by several parishes (Kirchengemeinden) together. An ecclesiastical church district in Bavaria is area-wise a bit comparable to a political administrative district (Regierungsbezirk) and a deanery a bit comparable to something like a political county (Landkreis), yet - in most cases area-wise ecclesiastical and political territories are not congruent.
The ecclesiastical organization of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Bavaria - church district, deanery, parish - (Kirchenkreis, Dekanat, Kirchengemeinde) is mostly not identical to the political organization of Bavaria - administrative district, county, municipality - (Regierungsbezirk, Landkreis, Gemeinde).
