Worshipping at home

Neuchâtel English Church is an Anglican Church which welcomes all nationalities and denominations, worshipping together to support and deepen our walk with Jesus and shine the light of Christ in the world.

Due to Covid 19, our regular services remain suspended. Although some churches in Switzerland resumed gathered services from the end of May, Neuchâtel English Church decided to continue worshipping from home. This decision remains under review and updates will be communicated as appropriate.

We look forward to welcoming and worshipping with you in person in the future. In the meantime, please click here for online services from other Anglican churches in Switzerland or read through the relevant pages on this website. Twice-monthly bible study and prayer group are being held online, so please email for further details. We also have a very successful Zoom coffee & informal chat group – former church members are very welcome! – on the 2nd Monday of each month from 9.30-10.30. Our email: neuchatelenglishchurch@gmail.com You can just call in to say hello if you don’t have much time to spare.

We don’t normally divulge emails or telephone numbers on the website for security reasons, so if you don’t want to wait for me to empty the church mail box, please contact Pat, Ken or myself by phone or WhatsApp!

Thank you,

Study Groups / Prayer groups

Bible study and prayer groups are held regularly.

For more details about these, and for prayer support or requests, please email: neuchatelenglishchurch@gmail.com

Prayer requests are dealt with in strictest confidence unless otherwise indicated.  If you would like the wider church body to be praying beside you or for you, please let us know.

Teaching days

Teaching days are arranged periodically.  These are great opportunities to come together in fellowship and deepen our faith and increase our awareness of the Lord’s purpose and plan.

Children and safequarding

“let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Luke 18:17).  

We welcome families, children and young adults of all ages.

We adhere to the Anglican policy and protocol on the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults of the Diocese of Europe.


Social Fund Raising Evenings
As a Church we support many local and international charities through both tithing and special events.
Below is a picture of a Greek night held to raise money for a hostel in Athens for unaccompanied child refugees.
Recently we organized a soup meal for the Bishop’s Lenten Appeal, which raised 400Chf for work done in Calais by the churches, once again  amongst under-age refugees.

We also continue to support our friend Beryl Baker, a nurse/missionary in her clinic in Paraguay, working among the Chaco Indians.  Our collections at Christmas, Harvest Festival and its accompanying auction of produce are vital for her ongoing work.

*Due to Coronavirus all Neuchâtel English Church services remain suspended.

Although some Churches in Switzerland are resuming gathered services from the end of May, Neuchâtel English Church have decided for the moment to continue worshipping from home.  This decision remains under review and updates will be communicated as appropriate.***

***Revd Helen Marshall has agreed to come from St Ursula’s Church in Berne to lead a service of Holy Communion on Monday 19th July at 18h. We do hope that you will be able to attend as we try to get our church and congregation meeting again. We can then further discuss holding regular services once again.
If anyone requires a lift please let us know by email neuchatelenglishchurch@gmail.com and we will arrange for you to be picked up and please also spread the word to anyone that I may have forgotten.
We will of course be observing the measures in effect at that time concerning the pandemic and will ensure that the windows are opened regularly so that the room is thoroughly aired. For this first occasion we have not planned tea and coffee after the service.
Looking forward to seeing you soon at our hall in la Rue des Poudrières, Neuchâtel
