English Speaking Church recommendations?

Hi All,
My wife and I are keen on finding a church when we get to Zurich next month. She's brought up Christian so keen to find an english speaking church with a good community - do these exist near Seefield, Zurich? I've done a search on the forum but the only english ones I can find are roman catholic... thanks.

Although Anglican by name, the community is very diverse.

Re: English Speaking Church recommendations?

There are couple options close by: right near Seefeld/Downtown area is International Protestant Church, large and friendly community
http://www.ipc-zurich.org
Also can recommend International Baptist Church Zurich, a bit smaller than IPC but friendly, on other side of lake but easy to reach
http://www.ibcz.ch
Like any church, each has different priorities as to doctrine, teaching, fellowship, outreach, community, etc. Trust you will find the right one for you!
Peace, grace, and welcome to Zurich!

The Protestant Church in Oberengstringen with its Reverend Jens Naske is not English speaking but well known as the GOSPEL CHURCH and will for example on 1st March have a Gospel concert (Roxy Zollinger) . Jens Naske is a rather modern Person and his Performances are excellent.

Re: English Speaking Church recommendations?

Also the international church called "Path of Life", with many friendly folk from Ghana... and elsewhere:
http://www.thepathoflife.org/Groups/.../Services.aspx

I see you're looking specifically in Seefeld, and others, like me, have recommended places further away. Don't be discouraged by this... you will discover that the public transport in and around Zurich is excellent, and it'll be easy to reach all the abovenamed churches.

Re: English Speaking Church recommendations?

A former professor at my Uni spent a few years en Suisse, and she sent a long email with pointers. Relevant points follow [She apparently seconds Kaloid's suggestion of the IPC]:



Quote:
Baden's Catholic church has an english service on the 4th Sunday of the month.

St Andrew's in Zurich is Anglican and has a good number of Americans, and across the street from it is IPC (Protestant) Church.


Most folks find IPC friendlier, but St Andrew's has English speakers from many denominations and many countries as well as a more 'catholic' liturgy.
I cannot comment on any of this from firsthand experience, though.
