Anglican worship in Geneva

4th April Pilgrim Course and every Wednesday onwards

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.

Here and there – All the Church offered on 14 April

Saturday 14th April saw two distinctly different activities proposed for our parishoners.
