What is Cabes ?

CABES means Contacts Friendship Bible between Foreigners and Swiss people. CABES is a team who seeks to share God's love with non-Westerners who have come to the French-speaking part of Switzerland in order to find refuge or to flee economical poverty. This sharing includes welcoming people and developing friendships as well as sharing the Gospel.

We want to encourage Swiss Christians to connect with foreigners and to approach them humbly.

This project began in 1990 with Jean-Pierre and Suzanne Besse's ministry with a few other people, such as Jürg and Annemarie Loeliger. At present, CABES is a Scripture Union ministry.
