2020 ROAD MAP
As a team we have been thinking & praying about the way forward, how and what can we do?
This resulted in a road map which we explain below.
However the road ahead is still pretty unclear and uncertain and this road map will be changing following the development of Covid-19 and our government. It doesn't look like we are able to meet with big groups anytime soon. Even when we are allowed to meet with a 100 from July on we need to consider if this is a good way to do so. We don't think gathering with face masks on and not being allowed to sing is a good option.
As a team we are discussing the steps to take and using the opportunities that are ahead. One of these things are meeting in small groups on Sunday's. We do think this can be a good first step forward without risking anything or running to fast. We need to stay alert and careful.
Time wise we are thinking to implement these Sunday small groups from the 21st of June on until December, most possibly until the end of winter, spring 2012, or longer if necessary. Please get in touch with us if you are able and willing to open up your house on Sunday mornings or want to join one of the groups. More details will follow asap. Please read all about the first Phase below and check out the full map.

JUNE UNTIL DECEMBER
SUNDAY MORNINGS SMALL GROUPS
Open up your house and invite a few in (max 6 besides your own household, depending on situation and ability to maintain 1,5 meters). Have fellowship with each other, drink coffee and watch the live stream together. Prayer and personal care can be in place as well and maybe have lunch together if able or join the church afternoon activity (twice a month).
After the morning service gather in the park for lunch (if the weather is nice), doing some games and sports activities or go for a walk in nature. We can plan this twice a month or more frequently with your small group.
In the winter season we will plan more indoor gatherings.
MIDWEEK SMALL GROUPS
Our current midweek small groups will start gathering again like 18:30 and our courses (Foundations, Alpha).
Prayer is vital, and it would be great to pray more frequently.
So the idea is to gather for an outdoor prayer once a month on Thursday.
We just had an amazing summer baptism, 4 people publicy declaring their faith in Jesus.
This winter we possibly plan another baptis.
If you are thinking about baptism, please let us know.
In all cases we will maintain government policy's that should be very familiar to us right now like keeping 1,5 distance, washing your hands, stay home if you have a cold or fever etc etc.
