English-speaking baby groups in Bern?

I am living in Bern and am expecting my first baby - due date is in 2 weeks (Nov 2016). I was wondering if anyone knows of any friendly English-speaking baby groups in Bern. If not, are any of you English speaking parents living in or around Bern interested in meeting up from time to time?

Does the group at St. Ursula's Church have a religious focus, or is it just a meeting point for parents & their kids?

It is a meeting point only and NO religious focus. There are some holidays we celebrate like Halloween.

Thanks for letting us know about the St Ursula group, i will certainly go there. Do we need to register or just show up? I will also google it to find more information. Thanks

There is an English-speaking playgroup, but I can't remember the name. I'll have to make inquiries, a friend of ours is - or at least was - involved with it.
