Beiträge More Tea, Vicar?

Was glauben die Menschen in London? Wie lebt es sich im Grossstadtjungle? Carla Maurer, Pfarrerin an der Swiss Church in London (@swisschurchvicar; @swisschurchlondon) und Londonschweizer Laurin Reding besuchen Orte und Menschen, die in der Metropole (über)leben. Es erwarten euch emotionale, überraschende und faszinierende Geschichten direkt aus dem Herzen der britischen Hauptstadt, wo es nicht immer nur glitzert und glänzt.

Dieser Podcast ist für Londonliebhaberinnen, Menschenfreunde, Glaubensinteressierte und Geschichtsfans. Der Podcast ist zweisprachig, Schweizerdeutsch und Englisch.

Produziert mit der Unterstützung von Julian Simmons (@julianpaulsimmons) at DIN vicarage studio.


This podcast isn’t about tea but rather about the people in the arguably biggest tea-drinking nation in the world. Carla Maurer, vicar of the Swiss Church in London (@swisschurchvicar; @swisschurchlondon) and London-based Laurin Reding will take you to their most personal and special places in the British metropolis. Emotional, funny, surprising and fascinating stories await you at each stop and the two will talk about their lives as foreigners in the buzzing heart of the biggest city on the island.

Have you ever thought of a question that you didn’t dare asking a woman of God? This is your chance. Carla will answer your questions honestly and with wit. And of course, there is something for the ear as well. Organist Peter Yardley-Jones (@pyjones) will play us out on the beautiful Swiss built Späth organ that has found its home in the Swiss Church in Covent Garden.

This is a podcast for London lovers, anglophiles, critical believers and agnostic Christians. Mixed and edited by Julian Simmons (@julianpaulsimmons) at DIN vicarage studio.
