The Wijdekerk Street, because together we are the church!
In addition to the general group, we also have some side streets: Wijdekerk Youth, Wijderkerk Women, Wijdekerk Rainbow Parents, and Wijdekerk Parents.
* Come together
Wijdekerk is a place where people can come together and share what difficulties they encounter on their way and in their faith.
* SupportWijdekerk also offers support. It is a place where you can think, ask and share freely in a safe environment. There is room for everybody’s personal process, for mutual recognition and creating awareness, for building up, and exploring.
* Safe spaceWijdekerk wants to be a safe space for all those who participate and therefore we encourage you not to try to convince other people of your own opinions or notions. Everybody should feel free to live according to their beliefs and life stories. It is not about convincing each other, but about coming together.
* PrayerWijdekerk wants to be a place for prayer requests and support through prayer.
Wijdekerk has a closed Facebook group: ‘Wijdekerkstraat’. The side streets have the following groups: ‘Wij de jongeren’, ‘Wij de vrouwen’, 'Wij de regenboog ouders', and ‘Wij de ouders’. These are online places to meet and support each other. A safe space for questions, sharing, and prayers. Because together, we are the church. Welcome. Subscribe through our online form and mention the group(s) you wish to be a part of.
Help LGBT+ people to find a church in which they feel welcome and accepted, so that they too can experience God’s love (again).
