Get to know La Côte
We hold a variety of services in the Temple de Gingins in Switzerland and the Eglise Protestante in Divonne, France.
At our 4.00 pm slot in Gingins, these vary between Holy Communion, Family worship and Evening Prayer. The services are led by the Chaplains together with a team of laity and on occasion, visiting speakers. Involvement by church members in leading worship, music and offering reflections contributes to our Christian maturity as a church. This also happens in our small groups where members take turns to lead. Anointing for healing during Holy Communion services offers a chance to receive a touch from God in moments of illness or struggle and is very much valued by all of us. Music is a crucial element as we seek to praise God together, and we are grateful to our gifted musicians for the time they commit to the choice of music and to playing on the day.
We meet on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays of the month at 10.00 am in Divonne and offer a rich pattern of worship, with a balance between Holy Communion and a Morning Service of the Word. The latter allows more scope and time for special themes, like Remembrance, and for exploring more music and singing with, for example, Taizé chants, a sung creed and sung responses during prayers. Many thanks to all who participate in worship in whatever way: readings, prayers, dramas, welcome, chalice…This is how we serve God and each other Sunday by Sunday.

Emily is our Youth Worker at La Côte Church. She was born in Bristol and spent the first few years of her life in the seaside town of Weston-Super-Mare. She moved to Switzerland with her family at the age of four, for 6 months. 23 years later she’s still around. Baptised in the Lac Léman sporting bubblegum pink hair and orange board shorts, she’s never been one to be subtle about Jesus.
She trained as a nurse and shares her time between working in Ministry and working in healthcare. When not at work, she can be found with her cats, listening to music or at the gym.Read Details
