St Peter’s Church is situated behind and above the Myoko Restaurant, opposite the Mont Cervin Palace Hotel.

As the Alps became of greater interest to travellers in Europe in the 19th century, Zermatt became popular as a destination for mountaineers, and demand grew for church services in English, which began in the Monte Rosa hotel in 1862. In 1870 St Peter’s was built.

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.

DECEMBER 17 - 31: Revd Alan & Mrs Anne Purser

This church opened for services on St Peter's Day, Wednesday 29 June 1870, and was dedicated on Sunday 6 August 1871. We celebrated our 150th anniversary over the weekend Friday 6 to Sunday 8 August 2021.
