One unique aspect of Immanuel Bible Church is that although it was founded as a German-speaking church in 2001, several years later, English services were offered as an outreach to the English-speaking community in Vienna. As a result, the church offers a thoroughly Austrian church experience with a love and concern for the international community.
After the English church service, follows the German service, which typically is very parallel to the English message and format. Many in the English community use the opportunity to hear the English message and then remain to participate in the German service with far more understanding. Spiritual growth, coupled with growth in the native language (German), make the living experience in Vienna much richer.
The English Service starts Sundays at 10 am
At Immanuel Bible Church we regularly celebrate the Lord's Supper together. There is a devotional time in which we commemorate the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are invited to join us to celebrate the Lord's Supper, if you are a believer in good standing. We are looking forward in seeing you in one of our services.
From our Church Preamble
We engage, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to pray for one another, to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this assembly, in knowledge, holiness and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor and spreading of the Gospel through all nations.
There are a couple of groups that meet during the week, outside the regular Sunday meeting. Home groups are a great way to connect, have fellowship and grow together in the body of Christ. The groups meet at different places on different evenings to get deeper into Bible study, discussions and prayer.
Be part of our English-speaking Bible study on Tuesdays or our German-speaking Bible study on Wednesdays.
Start your day with us in prayer every Wednesday at 7 am in our church.
"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place,
and there he prayed."
- Mark 1:35 (ESV)
The Kids Church begins right before the service starts and is bi-lingual so your child will find him- or herself in a familiar environment, whether German or English is his or her first language. There are plenty of opportunities to interact, share and learn together.
We encourage teens ages 12-18 years, to find their identity in Christ and their personal part in the church life. Our teens meet every two weeks on a Saturday from 2-5pm! Don't hesitate to come to our meetings and meet other teens!
In our meetings, we will have time of Bible emphasis, fellowship, fun and learning together what being a Christian is all about!
Feel free to join us for some fellowship.

Our Young Adults meet every Sunday at 5:00 pm for Bible Study, singing and a short challenge with some good discussion. We pray for one another and have some planned fun. There are also numerous "unofficial" events and social gatherings planned throughout the year - such as retreats, sports and dinners.
