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.
