A Presbyterian church convening diverse nationalities in Geneva

Coronavirus Notice

The very long list of requirements that must be in place, added to the  advice that people over a certain age, or with particular vulnerabilities should not attend church gatherings, combined with the fact that our French members and friends have no final  absolute information about border openings has led the Kirk Session to conclude that we continue with our on-line worship until such times as there is a clearer picture of how we can manage a return to the Auditoire for something approaching a normal church service.

If you would like to take part in our online Sunday worship, please use our contact form to send us your email address and other details.  From 15 April, mid week online worship will also be held on Wednesdays at 12h30.

 

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.

History

In the mid-sixteenth century, at the time of the Reformation, John Knox studied with Calvin and led worship for the English-speaking refugees. After a gap of over 300 years, the Church of Scotland reappeared in Geneva and has held regular worship since 1867.

L’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.
