The Swiss Church in London is a Grade II listed building set in the heart of London’s Covent Garden. As a church, it is rooted in the Swiss reformation, welcoming people from all paths of life and from all church traditions or none. It is an ecumenical congregation gathered from across London, and many of its parishioners are migrants from Switzerland.

As well as being a place of contemplation and worship, the Swiss Church also runs an ambitious programme of arts and cultural events. Since 2011 it has partnered with Goldsmiths, University of London to run an annual competition for first year Curating students. The prize results in a two week exhibition in February/March, that gives the chosen curator the support and finances to deliver a curatorial concept of their own initiation.

In 2017 the Art Committee decided to expand artistic activities at the Church, appointing curator Kirsty White to devise a year-long programme. Entitled Being and Appearing, the programme is supported by Arts Council England and the Swiss Church in London.
