Activities and Groups

Ministry

Our international congregation is part of the Church of Scotland, a Presbyterian Church with a long and rich history of involvement with the wider world. We exist here in Geneva to minister to English speaking people who want to worship in the Reformed tradition, and to encourage them in the Christian faith. We aim to be self-supporting financially, and increasingly look to offer support to worthwhile projects, both in Geneva and other parts of the world.

Auditoire de Calvin

Built on a site that has had churches since the 3rd century, the Auditoire is steeped in history. It was previously known as Notre-Dame-La-Neuve before Calvin started giving lectures in 1555. Udo Zembok created the nine beautiful stained glass windows, which were installed in the Auditoire in 2007.
