"Youth Church" with a special service for everyone who has "left empty-handed so far".

The “Vorarlberg Youth Church ” invites young singles between the ages of 18 and 30 to a special service on Thursday in Feldkirch (7 p.m., Johanniterkirche, Marktplatz 4). At the Singles Mass, including a "blind date", the aim is to address those who have "until now come away empty-handed" when it comes to love, according to a broadcast on Tuesday. Anyone and everyone is invited, regardless of sexual orientation, as the invitation from the “Youth Church” with the hashtags “#loveislove” and “#outinchurch” indicates.

Youth pastor Fabian Jochum acts as “Amor”. Its “hit rate” was considerable, it was said: after four singles services, there were already some happy couples.

The evening will start with a walk through Feldkirchen city center, where various stations will lead to the topic of the evening. During the subsequent “blind date” in a restaurant, the singles are invited for snacks and a drink.
