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-speaking 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. You can support us by becoming a Friend of St Bernard's. Your donation will help us maintain this important historic building and enable our outreach in Wengen.

Thank you!
