You need to catch the train to Berne, http://www.anglican.ch/index.html

St Ursula's is a very active protestant church in Berne: http://www.stursula.ch/

Here you go.
It's not an english speaking church as such as the services are held in french but english translation is offered.
There are some regular english speaking folks attending too.

Re: English Speakinh Churches in Neuchatel

There is one in Serrières (or was - I suspect it may be the same one as SwissPete has linked to which has moved).

I'm not a churchgoer myself, but a colleague took me along to their Christmas carol service last year and I was very surprised by how many people were there.

There is a church near the Place Pury named Rochette. Here is the link:

There are quite a few foreigners there from what I understand and I go there and like it. It is not actually in English, but they have translation headphones for you. (You put headphones in and the person in back translates, its actually really nice.) Anyway good luck!

Re: English Speakinh Churches in Neuchatel

I was told the other day that there is an English Vicar working here in Neuch - does anybody know his name and where (Church)?

We live next to a Church, but it doesn't speak much at all actually- even bells are not very frequent.

Her name is Dianne Cox and she is at the English speaking church at La Coudre. I can PM her email address to anybody who is interested.

The church website is www.neuchatel-church.ch but I think there is a link for it in one of the earlier posts

No idea about him but then we're not really churchgoers so I don't really know much about the churches in Neuchâtel.

There was a male English vicar at the carol service I went to in Serrières last Christmas (referred to in my earlier post - the church is very close to the main Neuchâtel cemetery). No idea of his name or where he comes from though, I only tend to go into churches for concerts.
