Welcome to Holy Trinity Church, Geneva PDF Print E-mail

Holy Trinity Anglican Church is a church in the Archdeaconry of Switzerland, part of the Church of England's Diocese in Europe. The church is situated near the centre of Geneva on Rue du Mont Blanc, between the bridge and the railway station (see map).

Services are held in English, and the congregation comes from many different nationalities and backgrounds.

For information about all our MUSICAL activities, please read the articles under 'Music', in the 'Worship & Music' menu at the top of this page.


The organ restoration work (complete overhaul and electrifying the stop action) is now underway, being carried out by the firm of Kuhn of Mannedorf, and will probably last under Christmas.


The next fundraising event in aid of the Organ Appeal will be on Friday 9 October, at 7 pm, when Bjorn Riis-Johannessen will be showing slides and talking about his recent sailing and skiing trip to the Antarctic!  See the poster to the right.  This will be followed by drinks and a buffet and a collection will be made.


Our second Newsletter with an update of HTC Organ Restoration Project can be downloaded here. Please take a few moments to read through this newsletter which will give you an idea of the aims and challenges ahead and progress we are making.  You can also pick up a printed copy from the Welcome Desk in church.

A visiting Bishop PDF Print E-mail

On SUNDAY 18 OCTOBER at 6 pm, please note that Holy Trinity Church will be honoured with a visit from the Presiding Bishop of the (US) Episcopal Church, the Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, who will preach at Choral Evensong that evening.  This will be followed by an informal reception and opportunity to meet Bishop Katharine, who is visiting the Convocation of American Churches in Europe as she prepares to step down from office next year.  This is a very significant occasion for us, and we hope that as many as possible of our regular congregation as well as visitors from Emmanuel and other churches in the area will be with us that day.  Please note that (a) the time is different from usual – 18.00 and (b) the regular Informal Worship will be the following Sunday, October 25 (at the regular time of 19.00).

Harvest Festival PDF Print E-mail

A big thank you to all who cooked, helped set up, serve, wash up in the kitchen etc. last Sunday 27 September for the Harvest Lunch. There were 60 of us and we made a magnificent SFR 1000 which will be paid into the general church funds.

Thanks also to those who decorated the church so beautifully for the Harvest Thanksgiving.  It was a mouth-watering delight to savour the produce whose fragrance greeted us when we came into the building!   Thank you also and apologies to the Junior Church who had provided gifts to be presented at the Offertory.  Alas, Canon Alex did not know about these and so they had to be presented afterwards.  All the produce was distributed to worthy charitable causes in Geneva.


The preparation for confirmation will start at the beginning of November, and it will take place for 30 minutes each Sunday following the Junior Choir’s practice, so approximately 12.30 until 13.  It’s still not too late to sign up for the sessions and anyone, adult or younger person, who would like to prepare for the Confirmation here on Sunday February 7 at 10.30 when Bishop Robert will be with us, please let the Chaplain know as soon as possible if you have not already done so.


SATURDAY 21 NOVEMBER:  Now is the time to start collecting for the stalls, please!
