Pilgrim Course (every other Wednesday)

PILGRIM COURSE: for some time, the Chaplain has been hoping that we might be able to host an opportunity for people – of any age but particularly young adults – to learn more about the Christian Faith. The Church of England, knowing something of the success of Alpha and Emmaus courses, has produced material for its own Pilgrim Course. If you would…

The Clock – back in action

Geneva, February 2, 2018  In case it has escaped the notice of any of Holy Trinity’s congregation, the church clock is telling the time, for the first time since October 17, 2014, when it was removed for restoration at Geneva’s horological school.
