Part-time Youth Worker sought PDF Print E-mail

Council decided at its last meeting to advertise for a part-time youth-worker.  This will help fill the gap since the joint-youth agreement with Emmanuel Church ended last summer and Louise Cox left.  For practical reasons, we would like if possible to find someone already based in or near Geneva and the advertisement can be seen here.

 

Thank you for spreading the word and for letting the church office know of any particular places we might place the advertisement ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ), in case we have not already thought of them.

Abbey Library St. Gallen PDF Print E-mail

The current exhibition, The Advent of Printing – The Incunabula of the Abbey Library of St Gall, runs until 6 March 2016 and focuses on incunabula from the time of Gutenberg up to 1500. This exhibition provides an overview of the first few decades of the new technology and the Abbey Library is proud to present part of its valuable collection, which has been carefully restored over the past two years.

 

A group from Holy Trinity will be visiting this exhibition on Saturday 27 February 2016.

 

We will be taking an early train to St Gall where we will be joined by Jenny Horlent from the Zug Anglican community, who is a translator for the Library (Dorinda's sister!)  We will have a guided visit of the exhibits followed by a light lunch in the cafeteria.  The afternoon will be free for visiting this pretty town (where they also have the national lace museum), and we return to Geneva by train at a mutually agreed time.  However, if you want to return earlier, later, or make a weekend of it, you are of course free to do so.

 

Cost: Train fare to St Gall – if you live in a Swiss commune you can ask at the town hall for a day ticket (most town halls sell them for CHF 40.--); we will divide up the guide’s fee between the total number of participants; lunch and refreshments.
