welcome to

St John’s Montreux

An Anglican Community in the heart of the Swiss Riviera


We celebrate Sung Eucharist every Sunday morning at 10h30.
A mid-week Eucharist is celebrated each Wednesday at 10h30.

Our worship is in the style of the Anglican tradition using the ancient liturgies of the Church to make Christ’s presence known today in our lives and in the world.

We welcome all to our services.

The cost of maintaining the chaplaincy of St. John’s Montreux with Villars is completely self-financed locally. We receive no external funding whatsoever and we are completely reliant on the faithful giving of our members and friends. Please consider supporting the work of the church through a one-time or recurring gift. Click below to learn all the ways you can give to St John’s Montreux.


In common with the rest of the Diocese in Europe, we have robust procedures to ensure the safety of young children and vulnerable adults. St John’s designated safeguarding officer is Jane Francois. Please contact her here for any enquiries or concerns.


If you are interested in holding a special service at our church or would like to speak to our chaplain, please contact The Revd Canon Paul Ormrod. He would be happy to assist you.
