Activities

There are a number of activities to which we are glad to invite you. Feel free to join us in conversation, song and prayer!

Holy Fire Celebration (Heilig Vuur Viering)

Every second Sunday of the month we worship in the Gast-Huis, Arie Biemondstraat 103.
During our services, we speak of God and talk to Him, we sing songs in His praise, and speak of the road we have travelled with Him.

We read from scripture, have a short homily, and one of us will tell their story of faith.
The readings, the homily and the story will be translated into English.

After the service, we share a meal.

You are welcome to share food for the body and for the soul with us.

The doors open at 5 PM, the service starts at 5:30.

 

“Aan het woord”

The Bible is at the root of Christian culture. In this group, we want to find out for ourselves what these texts actually say. Every second Thursday of the month, we confront the prophets, the Mosaic laws, psalms, gospels and epistles. Are we still nourished by these texts?

Location: 1e Hugo de Grootstraat 13: 8 p.m.

“Bakkie Troost” (cup of consolation)
