Introducing the current and forthcoming Chaplains

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.

Our chaplains are in resort for around eight months of the year to serve the local community as well as the many English speakers of different nationalities who come for short or long trips, many returning year after year.

Sunday worship at St. Bernard's is at 10:00 (normally Holy Communion) and 18:00 (normally Evening Worship). However, please note that, occasionally, our chaplains are not ordained (in which case they will not have the title 'Revd'), and so there may be weeks when the morning services may also be non-Eucharistic.

Each week through the season: Thursday Social Hour 17.30-18.30

St. Bernard’s was built and is maintained by ICS. Thanks largely to the generosity of a trust, we have been able during 2002 to make urgent repairs to the heating, exterior walls and drainage, improve safety by installing a fire exit and lightning conductor, and purchase pew Bibles.
