* COVID-19: Summer Season in Switzerland and Greece.
While the situation in the various resorts is improving in terms of both access and the loosening of restrictions, the situation in the UK and with international travel, continues to give great uncertainty and risk.
It is with great regret, therefore, that we have reached the conclusion that our entire Summer 2020 season of resort mission in Switzerland and Greece must be cancelled.
We look forward to restarting in the Swiss resorts in December with renewed hope and energy. We also plan to celebrate the 151st anniversary of St Peter's Zermatt, in June 2021, with the same enthusiasm and gratitude as we had planned for the 150th anniversary!
ICS has been sending out Chaplains to work in holiday destinations since 1844 when the Interlaken seasonal chaplaincy was founded! Our Chaplains are friendly and approachable, hosting meet ups and services every week, we’d love to connect with you and hear about your holiday highlights. We love meeting new people holidaying, working or living in Switzerland and Greece.
Sadly, we were informed on 19 November 2019 that our long (c.30 year) partnership with the Union Lido resort in Cavallino (near Venice) has been ended, due to the decision of the new management to stop offering English and German chaplaincies to their guests.
