History and equipment
The church was originally an Anglican religious building at the end of the 19th century, which was built in connection with British winter tourism. The church was built in 1888–89 by the architect Nicolaus Hartmann sen. and the builder Alexander Kuoni . The client was the Kursaal AG of the Maloja Palace .
The interior of the choir is rectangular. The central point is the altar , which was retained after the building was transferred to the Reformed. The church interior is covered with a vault made of wooden barrels, reminiscent of Noah's Ark .
The Evangelical Reformed Regional Church of Graubünden leads Maloja as part of the Bergell pastoral community within the Colloquium VII Engiadin'Ota-Bregaglia-Poschiavo-Surses .
