ABOUT CHRIST CHURCH
About Christ Church
OUR MISSION
Christ Church, the Anglican/Episcopal Church in Vienna, seeks to be a welcoming and caring church, providing a spiritual home for all generations that respects diversity and invites people from every walk of life to worship God, to grow as Christians in faith and understanding as well as to participate in God's mission to the world.

Led by God's grace, we aim to:
  • lnspire our community to live and work to God's praise and glory;
  • Provide for the worship needs of our community through a range of services and ministries;
  • Reach out to younger generations in ways that affirm the relevance of the Christian faith for today;
  • Engage with one another through the shared experience of worship, education and social events;
  • Share and meet with those in need, donating ten per cent of our income to charity;
  • Serve God through service to others.
OUR HISTORY
Although there has been an Anglican priest in Vienna, acting as honorary chaplain to the British ambassador and ministering to the Anglican resident community at least since the late 17th century, there has only been a permanent building since 1877. And from 1877 until the present, Christ Church has grown from a small embassy community to a thriving and diverse church in the heart of a great city.
