Wijdekerk Foundation is an initiative of a group of Christians, themselves LGBT+ people or closely related to LGBT+ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and + for another sexual identity or genderidentity). We believe everyone should be able to be themselves in his or her church. We have combined our experiences and strengths and share them on this website. We want to do this from our love for Jesus Christ. Together we are Wijdekerk.

Personal stories

We want to show you on this website how LGBT+ people and those closely related experience their congregation. How does it affect them when they are treated differently for being LGBT+? We call everyone to share their personal stories. We want to create understanding and would like to start an open and respectful discussion.

Besides that Wijdekerk offers a network on Facebook, Instagram, mail, personal meetings, TableTime, we the parents, and the annual Wijdekerk day.

Show what lives in the church, because together we are wijdekerk!

Inside-Out is een pakket met beeld- en gespreksmateriaal voor een reeks van vier avonden. Het is een hulpmiddel om in een groep (advies ongeveer 20 personen) met elkaar in gesprek te gaan over LHBT+ vragen. Elke avond heeft een afwisselend programma: een korte opening bij de bijbel, een korte documentaire en diverse gespreks- en verwerkingsvormen. Inside-Out is met zorgvuldigheid ontworpen. Kerken uit elke denominatie kunnen hiervan gebruik maken. Het programma biedt geen mening of visie maar helpt het gesprek procesmatig en in liefde met elkaar aan te gaan. De eigen gemeente is richtinggevend in het zoeken naar de bijbelse koers.

Register your church ...

To support LGBT+ Christians by finding a church, we ask churches to show their policy regarding LGBT+ people. Not every LGBT+ person dares to ask fort he policy regarding this topic, when entering the church. On the Wijdekerk map, an LGBT+ person can check this before visiting.


After submission it can take a few days before we have processed it. As soon as we have put you on the map, you will receive a confirmation by email.

The Bible and homosexuality

A colleague sent me a link to a sermon by Matthew Vines entitled 'The Gay Debate'. That was an eye opener for me!

I discovered a third way: a positive attitude towards gay relationships, especially for learning to understand the Bible even better. Step by step I became convinced that God grants everyone a relationship of love and faith.

​I have therefore been recommending the sermon for a while to anyone who has the same struggle. I hope that the document will make many Christians in the Netherlands think. Not because this sermon is the only truth. But for the simple fact that it is not black and white. That there is a third way ...
