The Story of Christmas – Your Christmas season at ICF
@icfzurich | #thestoryofchristmas
14 – 15 Dec.
The eternal story of Christmas is full of unexpected mysteries. It is the story in which the Son of God sets out to show people the way back to the Father. In his unconditional love for people, he seeks their trust. But people are scared, and they are very afraid of the unknown. They have to learn to trust. The one. The God who loves them so much.
ICF Zurich invites you to rediscover the story of the child in the manger in this unique Christmas show. You and your family are also invited to enjoy your time together at the atmospheric Christmas market which offers a wide variety of food and drinks.
Free admission – (Collection)
The Christmas market opens one hour before the start of the show and is then open all the time. The Christmas show is not suitable for children under the age of 8.
We recommend getting there by public transportation. The number of parking spaces is limited.

THE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS
Encouraging people in difficult circumstances
The fate of people from shattered circumstances and challenging living conditions does not leave us, as a church, unaffected. This Christmas we would once again like to have an impact on our environment and make a difference. We would like to encourage and support children from broken homes, single mothers or people without a daily life structure:
In the coming year we will implement various exciting workshops with the ICF Foundation in our workshop in Stettbacherhof (right next to the Samsung Hall). This year you have the opportunity to sponsor these workshops. They combine creative work with personal development and help the participants to a new structure in everyday life. The workshops offer an environment with a positive community and enable these people to celebrate valuable personally successes.
