About Us

The congregation initially met in the St. Andreas Schlosskapelle in Cham in October 1981 and later relocated to the new ecumenical Chilematt Centre in Steinhausen. In 2009 the Swiss Reformed Church on Alpenstrasse in central Zug has opened its doors to us. We are delighted to be building a stronger, more meaningful relationship with them - for example sharing their 1st August service on Swiss National Day.

Our clergy are based at St Andrew's Anglican/Episcopal Church in Zurich. The chaplain/assistant chaplain, comes once a month to lead the Eucharistic service on the fourth Sunday. 

There are 15 families and individuals on our membership list, and approximately 20 people attend worship on a regular basis. House-groups and coffee afternoons are organised on an irregular basis.

In addition, there is a monthly meditation session in English on the second Wednesday of each month which is at present being conducted on line. There are a number of annual events including a summer barbecue in June, a community walk and Harvest pot luck supper in the autumn, plus an annual carol service in December, which attracts a cross section of the wide international community that exists in Zug.

The congregation is a mix of long-term Swiss residents, some of whom are married to Swiss nationals, and expatriates living and working in the area who come from English-speaking countries such as Canada, the Bahamas, the USA and the UK. We represent a range of church backgrounds, from most parts of the Anglican/Episcopalian spectrum - catholic to evangelical, and other denominations within the Christian tradition.

We welcome everyone, individuals and families with children, and residents and visitors.
