17th October 2015 - "Conflict to Cooperation" a seminar on conflict resolution which was led by Nigel Spencer (Reader at the Anglican Church Basel).

"Words for Worship", held on 30th May 2015, was led by Alison Callway, leader of the Lay Ministry Training programme of the Diocese of Rochester, and her husband, Peter, a parish priest. The meeting was aimed at people preparing services of the word. It provided a good opportunity to meet people from different churches and discuss different approaches to worship. Participants spent time looking at the theology of worship, from the standpoints of scripture, reason and tradition, and undertook practical exercises in writing prayers in collect format and in using the resources from Patterns for Worship in service planning.

The 2015 Swiss Archdeaconry Choir Festival was held at St Andrew's, Zurich (10-12 April). The choir director was David Hill, and the organist James Orford.
