From the Beginning

The origins of the Scots Kirk Lausanne go back to 1876, when the Reverend A.F. Buscarlet of the Scots Kirk, Naples, was invited to come over from Montreux, where he was acting as seasonal chaplain. He soon became the first minister of a permanent Scottish church in Lausanne and raised funds to erect a building.

The Building

Viollet-le-Duc, the renowned French architect drew up the plans for the only new church he designed outside France — the Scots Kirk. The sanctuary was dedicated in 1877.
