The Bishop of London was held to exercise responsibility for Anglican churches overseas where no other bishop had been appointed. He retained responsibility for churches in northern and central Europe until 1980, but his jurisdiction in southern Europe ceased in 1842 on the creation of the diocese of Gibraltar. In 1980, the Bishop of London divested himself of all overseas jurisdiction and a new diocese of 'Gibraltar in Europe' was established.
Zermatt, in Switzerland, was a popular destination for Victorian English tourists. Protestant services were held in various hotels from the 1860s while funds were raised to construct a church. The church dedicated to Saint Peter, was finished in 1871.
