About St. Peter's, Château d'Oex

Our vision is to reach out to the English speaking community with the love of God. We aim to be a community where people can become followers of Christ Jesus, and, as part of his community, grow to become like him more and more. We support people in discovering their own unique contribution both in the Church and the world. But above all, our aim is to see Jesus stand out for all to see.

The bible compares human life to a journey. Each journey has a beginning middle and end. Along the journey there are a number of significant events where we as a church can offer significant support and assistance
A wedding is such an exciting, joyful and significant event. We at St. Peter’s love to support those intending to marry by providing both marriage preparation and a wonderful venue in which to hold the service. Please note that according to Swiss Law a civil ceremony needs to be completed before a religious service can take place.
A funeral marks the close of human life on earth. It is an opportunity for family and friends to gather together, express their grief and give thanks to God for the loved one who has died. We at St. Peter’s consider it an honour to share in this stage of the journey with others.
