Introducing the current and forthcoming Chaplains

This church opened for services in 1870 and so we will be celebrating our 150th anniversary during 2020, with a special time of celebration being planned for the end of June.

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. ICS owns and maintains the building, and provides the 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 many English-speakers of different nationalities who come for short or long trips, many returning year after year.

Sunday worship at St. Peter's is at 10.00 (normally Holy Communion) and 18.30 (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 in the church. (Behind and above the Myoko Restaurant, opposite the Mont Cervin Palace Hotel).

Please, consider making a donation to ICS, be it £50, £500 or £5,000 to allow us to continue our valuable ministry through the English Church in Zermatt Zermatt Appeal.
