* COVID-19: We are pleased to announce that we currently have our chaplain in resort, although we cannot guarantee being able to maintain this due to the current travel restrictions preventing UK travellers entering Switzerland.  

Worship at St. Bernard's (Winter Season planned from 20th December 2020, through to Easter Sunday, 4th April)

All services are subject to the legal restrictions related to the pandemic.  Contact details will need to be given by those attending and it is vital - for the safety and wellbeing of all as well as for the reputation of St Bernard's Church - that everyone plays their part in following the regulations and guidance in place.

Sunday 10.00: Holy Communion or Morning Worship (This is likely to be Morning Worship for hygiene reasons)

Wednesday 17.30: Evening Worship (This service is suspended for the time being)

Other services or social events will be planned, especially around Easter.  Details will be posted here, on the Social Media accounts and on the notice board at the church.  Please keep referring to these for the most up to date information.

The church was built in 1928 to meet the needs of the British skiers and other tourists who had discovered the amazing beauty of this place and its surrounding panorama of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains.

ICS Resort Mission provides chaplains during the summer and winter seasons who conduct services and work in the resort to share the love and Good News of Jesus Christ.

Our chaplains are in resort for around eight months of the year to serve the local community as well as the large number of English speakers tourists of different nationalities, many of whom return year after year.

St. Bernard’s was built and is maintained by ICS. We are thankful for the ongoing generosity of supporters in enabling this work to continue.
