Church of England Diocese in Europe

About Us

Christ Church Vienna is an English-speaking family of about 500 Christians from many nations. We represent in Austria the Anglican Communion, a worldwide network which includes Church of England, Anglican, Episcopal and similar churches in Britain, the United States, Nigeria, Canada, Australia, India and a further 165 countries. Our doors are naturally also open to all people seeking to walk more closely with God in their daily lives, and make new personal contacts. Our worship is Eucharist-centred, but we also offer a range of other services and events.

The following was adopted by our Church Council as part of our Mission Statement in April 2019:

Led by God's grace, we aim to:

lnspire our community to live and work to God's praise and glory;

Engage with one another through the shared experience of worship, education and social events;

Reach out to younger generations in ways that affirm the relevance of the Christian faith for today;

Build a culture of stewardship, based on the belief that God’s provision is generous and we are stewards, not owners, of everything we possess: our talents; money; time; possessions; the world around us and:

Serve God through service to others;

Share and meet with those in need;

Donate ten per cent of our income to charity;

Work together to embed environmental concerns in our worship, teaching and action.
