Pray for me / Listen to me / Support me

Nobody is meant to be alone or should struggle with their sexual orientation by themselves. Please know that the volunteers at Wijdekerk want to be there for you whenever possible. We have a big network around us, as well as a team of prayers.

  • Do you have a prayer request?

  • Do you need someone to listen to you?

  • Are you in need of support?

  • Do you need a supportive network around you? 

  • Do you feel alone in your journey?

We want to be there for you. Because we are equal in God’s eyes. We are meant to support and accompany each other. We want to do this through God’s love. Together, we are the church and YOU are an important part of that!

It goes without saying that whatever you share with us in confidence, will be safe with us. Read our privacystatement (Dutch)

Paula

My name is Paula Blokhuis. As a mother of LGBT+ children, I am involved in Wijdekerk and Wijdeouders. Together you always make progress. That's why I want to be there for you.

Marleen

My name is Marleen Dijksterhuis, I’m living in Gelderland and I’m from an evangelical background. My brother has had his coming out some years ago and since then the stories of LGBT+ people really touch my heart. The worst thing you can do to yourself (or someone else) is to condemn yourself for who you are and what you feel. I love to be there for you and really listen to you with an open heart. I hope you’ll find the inner freedom to really be you.

Geja van Reenen

I am Geja van Reenen, mother of an LGBT+ son and active at Wijdekerk. To encourage others, I have written the book “Ik zal altijd van je houden!”. I have personally experienced how important it is to be heard, to be able to share your story. When I needed support people were there for me. Now I’d like to be there for you.

Sa Xi Hamilton

I am Sa Xi Hamilton. I’ve been raised quite freely, but in 2016 I’ve come to know God in a Chinese-evangelical context. I’m Chinese, I’ve been adopted, I’m a christian evangelical and bisexual woman and I want to listen to what you have to say.

Do not hesitate & contact us and know that you are not alone!
