The Reformed Church in Fläsch in the Bündner Herrschaft in the canton of Grisons is an Evangelical - Reformed church under cantonal conservation .

History and equipment

The church presents itself as a simple building, the church tower with a broad onion dome characterizes the village. Different sources give construction dates within the pre-Reformation period between 1465 and 1479. The mother church of the Fläscher Kirchlein, which was under the patronage of Nikolaus von Myra , was St. Luzisteig at the time , from 1501 the Amandus Church in Maienfeld took over this function. In the choir there are still wall paintings from the founding time, which were uncovered in 1963. A two-manual organ has stood on the left in front of the choir since 1987.

In 1524, under Pastor Ulrich Bolt , Fläsch was the first Graubünden parish to accept the Reformation , when the parish celebrated the Lord's Supper under both forms, i.e. with a lay chalice . This act led to violent arguments with Maienfeld, who carried out a punitive action to arrest Bolt as a heretic . The latter was hidden in the basement of the community leader at the time.

Church organization

From 1965 to 2015, Fläsch was in pastoral fellowship with Jenins . Since then, Fläsch has been independent again and is looked after by a pastor on a part-time basis. The Evangelical Reformed Regional Church of Graubünden leads the parish within the colloquium V Dominion - Five Villages .


The Fläscher Church is famous for its large bat colony .
