Federation of Protestant Churches in Switzerland (SEK-FEPS)

Partnership History

  • The Protestant churches in Switzerland are products of the 16th century Reformation
  • Today the protestant Churches in Switzerland are experiencing both deterioration and renewal
  • The churches have just debated and accepted a text called "Vision at the Horizon 2020", which tries to underline the church we want to be, having accepted the fact that we can no longer be everywhere
  • The FEPS is using the Reformation Jubilee 2017 as a way to focus on the task of renewal
  • The FEPS is also working with all the cantonal churches to consider whether it is appropriate to move away from being a Federation to being one Swiss Protestant Church
