St Ursula's Flag Flies High In Switzerland

On 31 August 2014 the churches in Berne organised their first Kirchenfest. Nearly 80 churches of all denominations and other Christian organisations took to the streets and set up their stall in the city centre. In response to a sharp drop in revenues from church tax and from the cantonal budget (which pays the stipends of the three state churches), the idea was to demonstrate that the churches in Berne are alive, inventive and have more to offer than people generally realise.
