International relations

Learning from the world and creating peace

The PCS and its institutions maintain relations with church and civil society partners both within Switzerland and abroad. The Protestant Church in Switzerland is also a member of international church organizations such as the Communion of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) and the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC).

The PCS thus promotes the bonds between the member churches and their exchanges with partner churches within the country and abroad. Those responsible for external relations within the agencies, mission organizations, and the PCS meet once a year to learn more about their programs and to coordinate areas of their work together.
