Connect in Community
Being in a new city can be challenging. At Crossroads Basel we believe that each one of us needs friends for the journey. Our community is where we gain insight, support and grow as individuals. At Crossroads we provide various ways to connect with others in community and make friends for a lifetime. You will find a like-minded group of individuals with shared interests who also depend on those around them to navigate the challenges that living in this world present. Come find your community!

Crossroads has a dynamic Youth Ministry, active during both Sunday services and most Sunday evening during term-time. A great way to connect to peers! If you want to know more, please click the link to go to the Radiant Youth website.
The Young Adults Group is a place to connect with others who are in a similar life stage and drill down deeper into faith, community and commitment. Having lunch after the late Sunday morning service, a mid-week small group and off and on other activities. You are a young adult if you are (almost) in your twenties, right up to your mid-thirties and not ‘married with kids’. Contact us to get connected to this group.
“The bigger a church grows, the smaller it must become.” We offer a variety of small groups that help you build community. They are part of the fabric of Crossroads Basel and they come in different forms and sizes. If you want to join a small group, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, tell us what and where you are looking, and we’ll connect you with the right small group.
There are a couple of regular weekly activities for ladies, on Thursday morning an extended time with study and childcare, and Thursday evening with a meal. From time to time there are special one-day retreats or a weekend away for ladies. For more information click below.
Switzerland is hiking country par excellence and men at Crossroads Basel like to get out and hike. A couple of times per year, a hike is organised with the motto ‘I Am The Way’. We hike, we see beautiful vistas, get to know each other, talk, eat and share the Word.
Part of sharing life together is sharing ministry together. Our desire is that everyone who calls Crossroads Basel home will find a place to use their gifts. Each month we offer a special class called ‘Pathway to Ministry’ to help people get connected and find their place of serving, To sign up for the next session:
A time for pre-schoolers with their parents or caretakers on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00 at the Church’s premises. While the kids play and have a good time with other kids, the parents and caretakers will meet over a cup of coffee or tea, share about the challenges of raising young kids and their developments and look at an inspiring Bible word for the next week. Entrance is free.
Every Sunday morning during both services, there are children’s Sunday schools for all ages. Four classes for four different age groups from 3 to 11 years old. Volunteer teachers will take your kids through the Bible and Biblical themes with the use of the ‘Grow’ curriculum. Sunday schools start when the children are dismissed from the church service, some 10 minutes into the service. For the littlest ones from 1-3 years, there is child-care (Crèche) with lots of play, a snack and a group moment and is open from before until after the church service.
Life is full of unexpected occurrences that are out of our control. Sometimes we find ourselves in a difficult situation or in need of support. We would love the opportunity to come alongside you in prayer for your spoken or unspoken need. Simply fill out your name, email address and the type of prayer request that you have and our team will be sure to lift you up in prayer.
