Here for the first time
Thanks for stopping by! Here you will find a brief summary of the most important information about the Church of the Nazarene Nijmegen.
There is a place for you in our church regardless of your personal background, your circumstances, your age or social standing. We look forward to meeting you. You are invaluable to God and to us.
As a church, we meet every Sunday in our church building at De Gildekamp 6002 in Nijmegen for our morning service at 10:30 am. The church service lasts about an hour and a half. There is a special program for children during the service. Afterwards we meet together to drink coffee and tea and chat to each other. Live translation to English is possible.
We have an afternoon service every other week at 4:30 p.m. in the centre of Nijmegen, Groenestraat 170. The afternoon services focus on meeting with each other, in order to grow together in our faith. We drink coffee and tea and eat snacks, listen to an introduction and then engage with one another in conversation. The afternoon service is in both Dutch and English. When someone does not speak one of these languages, we do our best to offer an appropriate translation.
In addition to our Sunday services, we do a variety of other activities throughout the week. All our activities are free to attend. You are welcome to come and participate without any obligation.
We have small groups who meet mid-week to read the Bible, pray and support each other in our faith and strengthening our community. We have small groups in several different languages (e.g. Dutch, English, Spanish, Farsi). Are you interested in joining one of these groups? Then please contact us.
Every first and third Friday afternoon we meet each other at Taalcafé. Do you want to improve your Dutch in a fun and relaxed environment? Then come to our Taalcafé for coffee and good conversations.
Do you wonder if there is more than this life? Or why you are here in the first place? Then the Alpha course is for you! During the Alpha course we will discuss these questions and discover what answers the Christian faith gives to them.
Are you between the ages of 12 and 17? Every fortnight on a Friday evening we have a teen night. After a good meal, we have do both fun and entertaining activities and discuss more serious topics.
