Holy Trinity Church, Geneva

The Holy Trinity Church (Église Anglaise to locals) is a 19th-century Anglican church with an English-speaking congregation in Geneva.

History

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

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.
