We have now updated our list of Christmas church services for 2014.  If you would like to attend one of the many services happening in Geneva, Vaud and neighboring France this year, please take a look at the following list, which we have compiled from the websites of local churches. Some of them are French-speaking but most are English-speaking churches. Please check the websites before setting out, in case any of the times or locations have changed.

If your local church has not yet posted details of their services, please come back and check the article again later, as we will update the list when details become available.

If you know about other services in your area, please let us know.
