Villars English Church

Welcome to the Villars English Church, an international English-speaking congregation in the alpine village of Villars-sur-Ollon since 1883. We meet in the Aiglon Chapel located in the centre of the village and serve the area's international communities as a space of regular prayer and community.

Whether you are in Villars on holiday or a longtime resident of the area, we invite you to join us for a time of simple worship. We would enjoy the opportunity to meet you.

Our services take place on the first and third Sunday each month. View the service calendar.

We celebrate Holy Communion once per month when our chaplain joins us from St John's Montreux. Sections of the liturgy are sung by the congregation alongside hymns. The service follows Common Worship as well as the readings and seasons of the year established in the Church of England lectionary.

After the service, everyone is invited to go for a drink together to continue our time of fellowship and discussion.


In common with the rest of the Diocese in Europe, we have robust procedures to ensure the safety of young children and vulnerable adults. St John’s designated safeguarding officer is Jane Francois. Please contact her at [email protected] for any enquiries or concerns.
