There have been Anglicans in Geneva since the middle of the 16th century, when fear of persecution caused Protestants to flee to Europe soon after Queen Mary came to the throne in England. But it was only in 1853 that our church was built on part of the old Geneva city wall. The building was last renovated in the mid-1980's. It looks just like a typical parish church you might find in a village in Britain.

We are a flourishing community, with over 200 active members on our electoral roll, who come from over 20 different countries. What brings all these English-speaking people to Geneva? Well, Geneva hosts a large number of International Organisations of all sorts, including the United Nations, the World Health Organisation, CERN , WIPO , the World Trade Organisation , the World Council of Churches, and the International Red Cross , to name but a few. There are also the diplomatic Missions to the UN, and quite a few international companies who have their European headquarters here. We also have members of our congregation who are married to Swiss nationals, but prefer to worship in our church. And finally, there are many retired people who have chosen to stay in Geneva rather than return to their countries of origin.

We are an extremely varied congregation, and you are sure to meet some interesting people. Why not pay us a visit? We will do our best to make you feel at home.
For those who live in the Nyon region and who prefer not to come into the centre of Geneva, there is the La Côte community who worship in the village of Gingins, where a new congregation has grown up. A second congregation has recently also started meeting in Divonne in neighbouring France.
