About St. Peter's, Château d'Oex
St. Peter’s is an Anglican Church which has served the English-speaking community of Château-d’Oex and the Gstaad region of the Swiss Alps since 1899. We are home to a church family from a wide variety of denominations and nations.
We exist to reflect the love of God and to be a community where people can explore the life of faith, ask questions and encounter God. We are a community where all are welcome, and we love to see people grow and flourish as they find their place and discover their unique contributions to the Church and the world.
Worship is simple, thoughtful and accessible. We would love to welcome you to worship with us and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
St. Peter’s is a member of the Federation of Anglican and Catholic-Christian Churches in the Canton of Vaud. Learn more about the FACVV on their website here.
There are milestone events in life, and we are delighted to walk with you at these moments.
For more information about Baptisms, Weddings or Funerals at St. Peter’s please contact the Chaplain.
There is nothing quite like a church wedding. They are beautiful and romantic and deeply significant moments in your life together, as you stand before friends and family and God, and make solemn vows of love to one another. St. Peter’s is a beautiful church to be married in, and we would be delighted to share in the preparation for this most special day.
Despite the sadness and loss that we experience at the end of life, funerals can be deeply significant events, that help us to grieve, offer the comfort of faith, and celebrate the life of our loved ones. We consider it an honour to share this stage of the journey with others.

Services on YouTube

J.S. Bach is probably the greatest composer of them all. Yet he would end his compositions with the three letters SDG. Soli Deo Gloria means glory to God alone. He said, “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God”. Jesus’s life and ministry brought glory to God, and though he never had wealth or status in his life, he changed the course of history.
We settle for the pursuit of the ephemeral vainglory of this world in our lives, our work and even in church. But that is empty and self-serving robs us of our true humanity. As the catechism says, the chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever. Creation itself declares the glory of God, and we are witness to his glory as we tell the story of who God is and all he has done.
And that is why we are unimpressed by human vainglory and human ambition, sceptical of celebrity culture, pomp and pretension. Our labours and our lives should be marked S.D.G.
