History of Holy Trinity Church

Anglicans first arrived in Geneva shortly after the founding of the denomination in the 16th century, when fear of persecution under the newly-coronated (and staunchly Catholic) Queen Mary led many Protestants to flee to Europe.

The Holy Trinity Church was built in 1853 and was last renovated in the mid-1980s. Today, it has more than 200 members from over 20 countries.

What to See at Holy Trinity Church

The Holy Trinity Anglican Church stands on one of Geneva's main streets, Rue du Mont Blanc, about a block from the lake. Built on part of the old city wall, it is designed in neo-Gothic style that looks very much like a typical village church in England.
