A fun day at the beach

Very simple, people wil make their own way, after the church service, to gather at Hoek van Holland for a social/fun time.

Bring your own picnic and hopefully games and music will be organized.

There is a list on the notice board in the lower hall if you can offer a car share.

Mission Offering April 2022

Mission Offering March: Ma-Flo Kids Education Mission Offering

We all see the heart rendering images on TV and hear the reports of foreign and other correspondents.We can’t stay unmoved, please donate and see what else you can do.Find more information on:

The Ma-Flo Foundation was created in 2007 to support the personal efforts of Ma Flo. She is Florence Foyab, a Cameroonian member of the SICR, who discovered that many orphans, whose parents died of AIDS, could no longer go to primary school. With the aid of the Ma-Flo Kids Foundation, just over a dozen AIDS orphans are supported through primary school. Their school fees are paid and they receive a pair of shoes every year.

Unfortunately, the Anglophone South West and North West Provinces of Cameroon are in their fifth year of a virtual and all too real brutal Civil War. They declared their Universal Declaration of Independence in October 2017. The response of the francophone Central Cameroun Government was a brutal repression and occupation by francophone troops. Up to two thousand deaths on both sides have been counted, while there are more than a hundred and fifty thousand refugees in Nigeria.

The Government and mission schools have been closed for three years, due to the fighting, but small community schools have sprung up where Ma-Flo Kids have been found continuing their education.

In November last year we sent € 713,46 for school fees and shoes, which means that we now have to replenish our funds for the 2022/2023 year.

Please let your heart speak and support this Mission Offering by using the SICR Bank accounts: NL62 RABO 0373741006 or NL17 INGB 0000 175187


Registration is no longer required

In person services have resumed

The Church will be fully open from Sunday 27th February

  • Online registration for the Sunday worship is no longer required.
  • The church will be open as it was in pre-corona times removing the requirement for social distancing.
  • 4 pews either side to the rear of the church will be designated for those who wish to keep 1.5 meters distance.
  • The separate entrance and exit routes for the time being is retained.
  • Attenders are encouraged attenders to sanitize hands, sneeze into elbows, not to shake hands.
  • Please do not come to church if you are showing any symptoms.
  • There will be full congregational singing, the vocalists can finally rest! However, all hymns will be, at the most, 3 verses for the time being.
  • Windows and doors will remain open during the service. Come prepared for a cooler room!
  • The on-line services will still continue.
  • Tea and coffee will be available after the service.
  • For the time being the current method of communion preparation and serving will be retained to minimize person to person contact.
  • The same goes for the offering where the plates will be at the back of the church.

It may be that you are not ready to return to the church and that is OK.

The services will still be lived streamed HERE.

You may also wish to keep your Facemask on as you move about the building and that is also fine.

The main thing is that you feel comfortable as you make your way back to church.

We are grateful for everyone’s resilience over the last, almost two years.

It has not been an easy time but we thank God for his presence with us and know that God continues with us into the days ahead.

Thank you…

…to those who have worked hard to keep the congregation safe through thorough cleaning.

…to the vocalists who have enhanced our worship with their beautiful singing.

…to the musicians for their extraordinary talent and willingness to serve during this time.

…to the technical people who kept the services on-line and improved the presentation over time.

…to everyone who contributed in anyway to the services over this time.

We look forward to meeting you at our Sunday services!
