ELCG Table Talks

What are Table Talks? They’re informal gatherings in members’ homes over the summer months—a chance to meet with Pastor Andy and to talk together about our congregation.

Several gatherings have already taken place, and more will follow later in August—stay tuned, and join the conversation!

The long-awaited CD by our congregation’s choir has been released and is on sale after the service today for CHF 20.


Mark Your Calendars: Annual Congregational Retreat 26–27 September

Our Annual Congregational Retreat will take place in the Jura at the Monterêt Centre, near St. Cergue (www.monteret.ch) Friday (around 18h00) to Saturday (at 15h00). This will be a great opportunity to reflect, play, sing and get to know each other better. More information and sign-up sheets will be available towards the end of August. If you are interested in being part of the team working on the theme of the retreat, please contact Dorine Van Teeseling or Pastor Willis. If you would like to give a hand preparing the meals, contact Valerie Marinoni.
