Life Events

Baptism, Marriage, Funerals

The bible compares human life to a journey. Each journey has a beginning, a middle and an end. Along the journey there are a number of significant events where we as a church can offer specific support and assistance.

Baptisms and Thanksgivings

Baptism is a public commitment to following Jesus. At All Saints we welcome the baptism of infants whose parents are able to answer in good conscience the baptismal vows put to them. As well as Baptisms we also offer Thanksgiving Services, where we thank God for the gift of a new child and pray for them and for their family. This is sometimes appropriate for those who are either not yet ready for the baptism of their children or who wish to leave that option open until the child becomes a mature believer and is able to make their own decision to follow Jesus. If you would like to know more about baptism at All Saints’ please contact the Chaplain.

Marriage

A wedding is such an exciting, joyful and significant event. We at All Saints love to support those intending to marry by providing both marriage preparation and a wonderful venue in which to hold the service. Please note that according to Swiss Law a civil ceremony needs to be completed before a religious service can take place.

Funerals

A funeral marks the close of human life on earth. It is an opportunity for family and friends to gather together, express their grief and give thanks to God for the loved one who has died. We at All Saints consider it an honour to share in this stage of the journey with others.
