Prayer meetings

Throughout the Bible we see the right response to facing challenging, difficult, perplexing, confusing, troubling events is to bring them before God in prayer. This is both a wonderful privilege for Christians, and the best thing that we can be doing for ourselves and for the situation we find ourselves in.

For these reasons, we meet together every Sunday evening as a church on Zoom for an hour of live prayer and worship (20:00-21:00).

(link is in our weekly Sunday email)

Social help

Niet Alleen

Met #Nietalleen verbinden we de talloze lokale en kerkelijke hulpinitiatieven aan elkaar en aan hulpvragers.
De hulpvraag wordt door één van de samenwerkende organisaties opgepakt en doorgestuurd.

(currently website only in Dutch, we will update you if there are projects from here that we can help with)

Printout for mailboxes

You can print this card and put it in someones mailbox in your neighbourhood to see if you can help.

Help mee in de opvang

De Gemeente heeft op de diverse locaties extra handen nodig bij het voorbereiden en uitdelen van maaltijden, mensen voorzien van handdoeken en shampoo voor het douchen, maar ook om een praatje te maken. Daarnaast kunnen we ook vrijwilligers met een verpleegkundige achtergrond heel goed gebruiken. Mensen die flexibel zijn, graag wat voor de medemens willen betekenen en hun handen uit de mouwen willen steken kunnen snel aan de slag.

(Currently website only available in Dutch)

Frequently Asked Questions (sept 2020)

Sunday Gatherings

We will be starting with one predominantly English gathering from 10am to 11am in the Nieuwe Kerk. This will also be partly live streamed via YouTube. We want to start small and assess how it goes before multiplying into more gatherings. The current plan is when we add another gathering in that this one will be predominantly Dutch. All of this is dependent on the ever-changing regulations and the capacities we are allowed to have in the church building.

Currently we have set a limit of 75 people (adults and kids) to sign up for a gathering. Every gathering will have some people serving behind the scenes and not taking up a seat in the main hall. So roughly about 85 people will be present in the building. These numbers give us enough room to keep social distancing in place.

Yes but we are unable to confirm a date for this. We are starting to gather back in the Nieuwe Kerk in phases. We’re starting small to see what will be possible in the Nieuwe Kerk.

We will be live streaming the gathering from the Nieuwe Kerk from 10am to 10:30am. The content during this time will be a worship song, notices, stories/testimonies and a preach. After this, the live stream will end. Those in the Nieuwe Kerk will continue with a time of worship and communion. Those at home will be given resources to continue worshipping with their families, those in their households, life group etc.

The gathering live stream will begin at 10am and finish around 10:30am. This video will be kept on our YouTube channel for you to watch afterwards.

We will have some space available each week for any newcomers and visitors who can give their details to the Welcome Team at the door and join the gathering. Please note: this is for visitors and newcomers. Those that are part of Redeemer will need to sign-up beforehand. (In other words, if you are reading this here, you can find the buttons on the top of this page to sign up for one of our future gatherings!)

Health and safety around COVID-19

Arrows, one-way systems, hand sanitiser, 1.5 metre distance, 3 chairs left between groups/households, only households to sit together, maximum people by sign-ups before hand.

We are not asking people to wear masks to attend a Sunday morning gathering. However, if you would like to wear one, please feel free. Those serving communion will wear a face mask as when serving this, the 1.5 metre distance cannot be maintained.

We ask for you to please refrain  from using the bathrooms unless it is absolutely necessary. There are arrows to guide the way to the bathrooms and we ask you to please adhere to the 1.5 metre distance at all times.

No. Please stay at home for the safety of others. You can watch the live-stream from home. If you have registered for the service, please email service@redeemer.church to let us know you are not coming, so that we can open up your space for someone else.

We ask that person to inform us. We will then inform all attendees from that Sunday gathering. All of this in conjunction with the health services (GGD).

Kids – Teens – Family

Currently we are able to offer a group for kids of 0 – 5 years old.

The weekly kids online resources are currently only in English. (We are working on bringing you Dutch content in the coming months.) Our Sunday morning groups are a mixture of English and Dutch. We always ensure that there is at least one Dutch speaking leader in the group.

No, kids are free to move around and sit with their friends. Kids under 12 don’t have to social distance from other adults. (https://www.rivm.nl/coronavirus-covid-19/kinderen) We do however ask you to keep a close eye on them and to not let them roam by themselves in the building.

Absolutely! Joining the kids group is completely voluntary, please feel free to keep them with you.

Yes, the teens meet on zoom on Saturdays from 17:00-18:30. We are hoping to gradually move towards having more and more of these meetings in person if corona measures allow it.

If the tickets are full for your child’s age group we ask you to please sign up for another week. Only the children with 0-5 year old tickets for that Sunday will be permitted into the kids group. We want everyone who comes on a Sunday to have a chance for community with their peers so please sign up for a week where they can join their friends and have fun in their group.

It looks like we won’t be meeting in the Nieuwe Kerk until after 1st June. We’re following government guidelines and updates and will keep you posted. If you are not receiving our emails, make sure you register with us (see information above about Newsletters), or give us consent through your existing ChurchSuite profile.

As soon as it is safe for us to meet again, we will communicate this with you.

We want to stay connected as lifegroups during this time but also we are also following RIVM guidelines for all group meetings. At the moment we recommend that you consider using Skype (or alternative) to call each other over video chat. That way we can continue to support and encourage each other while keeping safe distance during the coronavirus outbreak. We will also send out an email to life group leaders and give them information.

Do make sure you look out for each other and when people are isolated or need help, see if you can help or reach out to us: help@redeemerchurch.nl

It looks like we will not be meeting together in the Nieuwe Kerk for the coming period, so we are not expecting you to come on Sundays to serve. Do keep an eye out for updates from our side just in case there are other ways to help out. And feel free to communicate with us if you have questions or tips! Let’s lift each other up in prayer and hope we will be able to meet again soon as a whole church in one building. Bless you! Joshua
