The Advent season begins on Sunday 27th November

There will be lots of opportunities to explore this year’s theme of ‘Light in the darkness’. There will, of course, be our normal morning services however in addition there will be evening devotional services at 19.30 looking at the same readings.

Advent 1 27 November John 1:1-14: The Word

Advent 2 4 December Luke 2:8-20: Shepherds with Communion

Advent 3 11 December Luke 2:25-32: Simeon

Advent 4 18 December Matt 2:1-12: Wise men.

This will be a busy day with a Sunday School Nativity in the morning and a Sunday School party in the afternoon. At 17.30 a High tea/potluck, local carol singing and a carol service in the evening 19.30.

This all leads up to Christmas Day which this year is on a Sunday.

To support the theme Bible Study material, produced by Irene Bom, is available for Fellowship Groups and personal study. These are downloadable from the links below.





We look forward to worship together as we celebrate the arrival of Jesus – God with us

Mission Offering November 2022

In November we support “SKIN-Samen Kerk in Nederland”

You can find out more about them and their work at

SICR Bank accounts: NL62 RABO 0373741006 or NL17 INGB 0000 175187

SKIN is een koepelorganisatie voor en door internationale en migrantenkerken in Nederland.

SKIN is uniek als interkerkelijke en interculturele organisatie die niet over internationale en migrantenkerken spreekt, maar van henzelf is.

De naam van de stichting weerspiegelt hun ideaal: “samen met onze broeders en zusters in Christus gestalte geven aan de eenheid van het Lichaam van Christus, de Kerk, in ons land Nederland.”

“De stichting heeft ten doel het door onderling contact en gezamenlijke actie van de bij de stichting aangesloten christelijke geloofsgemeenschappen elkaar steunen bij het zoeken en vinden van een zodanige plaats in de Nederlandse samenleving dat zij de mogelijkheid hebben om als kerk of kerkelijke gemeente in de Nederlandse samenleving te functioneren”.

Deelnemende kerken die bij SKIN actief zijn, zijn zowel de zogenaamde historische migrantenkerken (leden zijn afkomstig uit landen waar Nederland een historische – koloniale – band mee heeft gehad, zoals Indonesië, de Molukken en Suriname), als andere kerken, opgericht of voortgezet door migranten die afkomstig zijn uit andere delen van de wereld. Sommige van deze kerkgenootschappen grijpen terug op heel oude tradities, andere kerkgenootschappen zijn juist relatief nieuw. Sommige kerken zijn al tientallen of zelfs honderden jaren in Nederland, andere hebben zich pas recentelijk in ons land gevestigd. 

SKIN wil een tastbare bijdrage leveren in het voorzien van de basisbehoeften van haar deelnemende kerken (back to basics). We doen dit met name door toerusting van leiders en actieve vrijwilligers op diverse onderwerpen. Toerusting is essentieel voor de stabiliteit en continuïteit van de christelijke geloofsgemeenschappen. SKIN ziet hierin voor zichzelf een verbindende, informerende en coördinerende en/of verwijzende rol weggelegd.

September Mission Offering Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland


Stichting Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland is the foundation that assists refugees that have arrived in the Netherlands to go through their procedure of recognition, job seeking, finding housing and integration into Dutch society.

COA – Central Organ Accommodating is mandated by the Dutch government to receive refugees and asylumnseekers.

However, the IND- Immigration and Naturalisation Service of the Dutch Ministry of Internal Affairs is the authority that registers asylum seekers and approves their status. The lack of capacity by the IND and the current ‘hausse’ of asylum seekers causes the problems at the infamous reception centre of Ter Apel. Vluchtelingenwerk is active in almost every place in the Netherlands. They use many local volunteers, directed and supported by professionals. You are not only encouraged to support this Mission Offering with your donation, but also find out what help you can give as a volunteer.

Sint voor Kint – Serve the City & Samen 010’

One in seven Children in Rotterdam grows up in a family below the ‘poverty line. This means that they most likely don’t get a present at the end of the year. The very successful action ‘Sint voor Kint’ of Serve the City and Samen 010, assures that children in those families get a gift voucher to buy them a present. The Sunday school of the SICR supports this project again, like the previous years.

Every Child deserves a present at the end of the year, at Sinterklaas or Christmas.

All are welcome in this place
