CHRIST CHURCH VIENNA

Christ Church, the Anglican Church in Vienna (Church of England), 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.

You can learn more about our mission on our About page.

"Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: Keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever."

—Collect for Christ the King

OTHER STYLE ELEMENTS
This section is where we will catalogue additional elements of our preferred style at Christ Church.

NAME OF THE CHURCH
Christ Church is the official name of the church. In most communications, however, it is preferred to use the title and clarifying secondary line: Christ Church | The Anglican Church in Vienna (CofE). As is typical in the Anglican Communion, it is acceptable to also refer to the church with an appended geographical designation, hence Christ Church Vienna. Accordingly, our preferred acronym is CCV. If using the abbreviation, mark the first use accordingly: "Christ Church Vienna (CCV)."

TITLE
--Patrick's official title is Canon (do not abbreviate).
--The preferred designation for Reverend is Rev'd or Revd (not Rev.).

EMPHASIS
Quotation marks (") are for quotations and only quotations (and maybe, if stylistically appropriate, certain titles in bibliographies or citations). They are NEVER for emphasis. If you wish to emphasize something in text, use italics (also know as emphasis in typography). You can also use ALL CAPS or, if needing especially strong emphasis, bold.

SPACES
In modern typography, multiple spaces between words or sentences is generally unnecessary and/or wrong. It is a vestige of the mechanical typewriter era when typefaces were necessarily monospaced (each character occupies an equally sized space). In that era, spaces between words varied because the last letter of a word may not have occupied the whole space for that character. A double-space between sentences helped the eye catch that a new sentence began. However, since the 1950s, typefaces have generally been proportional rather than monospaced and so spaced between words were uniform. This has been the standard in print and especially on computers since the 1950s, so much so that our eyes are trained to expect it and a double-space slows down our reading. As it is no longer before the 1950s, is is WRONG to use any more than one space between sentences.

SERIAL COMMA
Also called the Oxford comma, CCV uses the serial comma. When there are three or more items in a series, put a comma before the and or or that precedes the last item. In case of a series within a series, use semicolons to separate the outer series.

DATES/TIMES
--Monday, 24 September, 1887
--24 September 1887 -- B.C.E. / C.E.
--10.30-16.00 (am and pm can be used for emphasis)

NUMBERS
--Spell out single-digit numbers. Use Arabic numerals otherwise. Exception: Always use a numeral with percent.

NUMBER AND ORDER OF ADJECTIVES
It is generally considered overly ornate to use more than two adjectives. However, when using multiple adjectives, there is a standard order in which they must be used: opinion, size, age, shape, color, origin, material, purpose, and then finally the noun.

WEBSITE ADDRESSES
Always omit “http://” and “www.” unless required for functionality. Use ending punctuation if the URL is part of a sentence.

LOCATION

Christ Church, the Church Centre, and the Shop are located next to the British Embassy in Vienna's third district and very easy to access via public transportation (information listed below).

Christ Church: Jaurèsgasse 17-19.
Church Centre: Salesianergasse 24.
Church Shop: Salesianergasse 20.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
As parking is somewhat limited in the area, the best options for finding the Church are on Vienna's extensive public transportation system. Three options include:

Tram 71
Take the 71 Tram (Strassenbahn) to Unteres Belvedere. You will exit the tram at the corner of Rennweg and Salesianergasse, just one street away from Jaurèsgasse. Please note: the 71 tram does not run beyond Schwarzenbergplatz on Sundays before 8am. If taking the 71 to our 8am service, you will need to take another tram to Schwarzenbergplatz and switch to the 71 there.

Metro (U4 U-Bahn Line)
Take the U4 Metro (U-Bahn) to Stadtpark. Walk along Johannesgasse and then along Salesianergasse approximately 4-5 streets to Jaurèsgasse. It is about 650m from the station to the church building.

Commuter Trains (Schnellbahn Lines)
If you are staying further outside of the city or prefer the commuter trains (Schnellbahn), you can take any of the lines that stop at the Rennweg train station (S1, S2, S3, S4, and S7). Exit through the north entrance/exit (away from Rennweg) and take the long ramp down to Jaurèsgasse. Walk toward away from the tracks approximately 2-3 streets. It is about 450m from the station to the church building. If you exit through the Rennweg entrance/exit, walk along Rennweg to Salesianergasse and then right to Jaurèsgasse.
