5 May 11:00 Sunday Service with Communion – The Good Samaritan

Arts and Culture – Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

Come and join us on Sunday 5 May at 11:00 am for our Sunday Service with Communion, to hear the latest in a series of sermons on famous stories -” The Greatest Hits from the Bible”. This week’s story is of the Good Samaritan, from the New Testament.

The Bible is full of great stories which are part of our cultural heritage and collective knowledge. Who hasn’t heard of Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, the Ten Commandments, David and Goliath, the creation of the world, or Jesus walking on water? Novelists and artists refer to these stories in their works, and they are popular children’s tales too. They fascinate and inspire people around the globe and across cultures, and religious affiliations.

Reverend Carla Maurer explores and re-interpret these famous stories, “The greatest Hits of the Bible”, in a sermon series which  started in January and will run until the summer break at the end of July.

In The Swiss Church, everyone is welcome to join in Communion, whatever their faith tradition might be. We worship in the Reformed tradition and have an ecumenical outlook.

Our hymns and liturgy are in English, French and German, and accompanied on the Späth organ, played by our Director of Music, Peter Yardley-Jones. The service will be conducted by our Minister Revd. Carla Maurer. The sermon is in English. Printed copies, including a large-print version will be available at the Service.

Please stay for lunch after the Service. It is an excellent opportunity to get to know people and to chat. You will be most welcome. If you would enjoy the opportunity to chat in Swiss German, or French, come and join us. We all speak English too, and a number of other languages as well. We look forward to meeting you all – friends, new and old.

This week’s work of art illustrating the Bible story, is by Vincent Van Gogh.
