The parish visit to Christ Church Vienna on 14 - 16 May had many of the usual components - a meeting with the Church Council and Churchwardens, individual interviews with the clergy and a confirmation service. In addition it was an opportunity for me to attend one of the newer activities of the parish - a Sunday evening service. The Assistant Curate, the Revd Jady Koch, has been responsible for the development of this more contemporary and contemplative eucharist, whose attendance is steadily growing, particularly, but not exclusively, among young adults. Fr Jady is pictured below with Mrs Hyacinth Oesterlin (who was one of the recipients of the Maundy Money from Her Majesty this year) and Victoria Curran, a younger member of the Church Council).
