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)

Then I would have known that there is a different christian view than the one that overwhelmed me at that time. I hope to help you by walking next to you for a bit, or by being a sparring partner for you. So that you can find ou
