A video clip which has some shots of the service, but more importantly, an interview with Fr Matthew Jones, can be found here. The new chaplain reflects on moving from Australia to Germany, and his expectations about the challenges and joys of ministry in Hamburg. St Thomas's Church is celebrating 400 years next year and Fr Matthew sees this as an important opportunity, not only to reflect on that past history, but to see what gifts and experiences can be carried forward into the future to enable the parish to move forward "to glorify God and celebrate life in the city".
