The Diakonie Austria is according to § 219 of the Constitution of the Evangelical Church AB u. HB in Austria a Protestant-ecclesiastical association.
Diakonia is a form of ecclesial communion.
Christians share joy and sorrow, hope and fear, and receive approval and forgiveness; they take part in poverty and oppression, in sickness and distress and take care of each other in all aspects of life.
From the administration to the liturgy, there is no area of the church that is not decisively influenced by the diaconal dimension. The diaconal existence of the church is grounded in the devotion of Christ. Diakonie starts with sharing at the table of the Lord and always leads back to the table of the Lord.
