Who we are
f a m i l y
"Oikos" means "a Family"
We are committed to searching out and growing in understanding of the scriptures and applying them every day to our lives.
Oikos Tamil Church, a Pentecostal Charismatic church associated with the Swiss Evangelical Alliance, was began in May 2004 under the able leadership of Pastor Larwin Nickelson.
In the past 15 years, the church has grown and now has branches in 7 cities across Switzerland in Basel, Bern, Chur, Lausanne, St. Gallen, Zug, and Zurich. Every last Sunday, all the branches come together in Bern for a special communion service, teaching, and fellowship.
The name “Oikos” in Greek means “a family”, and true to its name, the main focus of the church is families & family values.
