Every Member is a Minister
In order to fulfill our ministry St. Andrew’s relies on the time, talents and financial generosity of our members. We believe in every-member ministry.
There are many opportunities for service in our church. Some examples are found in the list on the left side of the page. Maybe there is something in the list which suits you, or something we haven’t mentioned. Please let us know.
When it comes to finance, our church is totally self-supporting. We receive no income from the Swiss church tax system, nor from our diocese, nor from the Church of England as a whole. Every franc we spend we need to raise ourselves. It costs about CHF 8,000 per week to run our church and its ministry. We therefore ask our members to be generous and realistic in their giving.
Please consider making a donation, if you are able, so that we can continue to operate in these uncertain times. Payments can be made via TWINT or bank transfer (See payments page here).
You may wish to consider pledging a regular amount, which helps us to plan and make best possible use of the income. This way, our church knows how much to expect and can budget accordingly. Our Treasurer will be glad to let you have precise details about the pledge scheme. If you would like more information, please contact our Treasurer, Ian Long (in confidence) at firstname.lastname@example.org
