What to Expect
New to CCV? Check out this page...
Christ Church Vienna is a gospel driven, externally focused, extended family, Anglican Mission for Vienna, VA.
CCV meets in person at James Madison High School in the auditorium!
We have made some adjustments since returning indoors during the pandemic, including the doors we enter and exit (Door 11, Main Gym entrance, instead of Door 12). In addition, we will not have kids classes or nursery at first. We will reintroduce elements of pre-pandemic church services as we are able in the coming months.
Christ Church Vienna is a casual environment where we encourage folks to wear what they want: T-shirt and jeans; suit and tie; and soccer uniforms have all been found. We want people to feel free to enter and engage as they are comfortable.
On Sundays our service is a unique mix of the ancient and current, the liturgical and informal. We begin with singing hymns—old and new—with music in the acoustic folk style. Besides singing, we hear from God’s Word—the Bible is read and a sermon is preached. And then we join together in corporate prayer.
During the sermon and prayers, kids through 5th grade are dismissed to classes where they engage a Bible passage and do some hands on learning or fun. Students in Middle and High School stay in the service, but have their own Student Ministry activities at other times. And during the whole service, a Nursery is available for infants and toddlers.
Once the Kids return from their classes, we finish our service by celebrating Holy Communion or The Lord’s Supper. People come forward to share from the common bread and cup, or to receive a blessing. When the Service concludes, many stay around to meet or catch up over coffee and bread.
Visiting should be Easy
Our hope for any who come to Christ Church Vienna, regardless of their faith background, is to find a friendly, welcoming space and to have the opportunity to meet and worship Jesus Christ, crucified and risen.
So feel free to stop by some Sunday, and who knows, you might find yourself a church home.
Special Note of Welcome
Our desire is to make the gospel accessible to all and we make accommodations as we are able so that we may support those who require assistance to fully participate in the life of the church.
Would you or your child benefit from accommodations? We would love to learn from you. Please contact Johnny@ChristChurchVienna.com
