Events – Friday, July 19th, 2019


Come and join us on Sunday 21 July at 11:00 am for our Sunday Service. It will be led  by our Minister Reverend Carla Maurer.  Her Sermon will take the story of Jesus cursing the fig tree as her starting point.

This will be our final service before the summer break. There will be no services in August. The first Sunday Service after the summer break will be on 1 September.

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.

The sermon is part of our “The greatest Hits of the Bible” 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.
