Swiss Church London

Greater London is home to about 20’000 Swiss citizens who have found a home away from home at the Swiss Church for over 250 years. Many Swiss people have spent most of their lives in London. Nowadays, young Swiss people often move here for a few years for studies, on a work placement or to gain work experience before moving on to another place.

London is an exciting place to live, but it can also be lonely and anonymous. The Swiss Church London is not only a place of worship, but also a community centre for Swiss people and friends to network, make new friends and cherish Swiss traditions. Everyone is welcome, irrespective of one’s religious affiliation.

About Swiss Club Edinburgh

The Swiss Club Edinburgh was founded over 50 years ago. Currently the Club has approximately 45 members. The Swiss Club Edinburgh provides an opportunity to meet people, who are Swiss or have a connection to and an interest in Switzerland and live in Edinburgh, Fife, the Borders or the Central Belt of Scotland.

Within the Club we celebrate Swiss events and culture and we are always open to new ideas. It is a place where connections and friendships are made, where you can get information from people who have lived in Scotland for a couple or for many years. The Swiss Club Edinburgh holds 6 to 8 meetings per year from Fondue Evening, National Day Celebration to outings and more, which provide opportunities to meet in a casual way. A "Stammtisch" takes place every first Wednesday of the month. 

Some of the events of the Swiss Club Edinburgh are held at the Saughtonhall Community Centre in Edinburgh.

Please join us for an event, if you are interested, and get to know Swiss people living in Scotland.
