Oversea's Pastoral Solidarity Switzerland

For over thirty years Swiss pastors of the Swiss Reformed Church and the United Methodist Church in Switzerland have been donating to their colleagues overseas. In September 2015 Overseas Pastoral Solidarity Switzerland became a registered association. Anyone contributing at least CHF 50 per year can become a member. A General Meeting is held bi-annually.
