We invite you cordially on Thursday, November 4th for two special subsequent events: the official presentation of Kerkengids Amsterdam and the ACCL Fellowship dinner.
Official presentation of the Amsterdam Kerkengids (Online Church Directory)
The goal for this (digital) directory is to have information on all Christian communities in and around Amsterdam. The directory has been online since April (https://kerkengidsamsterdam.nl/). The development of the church guide is a collaborative effort of various networks of churches in the city, Samen Kerk in Nederland (SKIN) and the Department of Religion and Theology at the Free University of Amsterdam. In addition to presenting the online directory, the partners in the steering committee will introduce themselves and share about their contribution to the city. Also are for the official presentation of the church guide representatives of the city council of Amsterdam, Duivendrecht, Amstelveen and Diemen are invited. A representative from the city council will discuss the importance of cooperation with the Church for the well-being of the city. This part of the program is provided by the Kerkengids steering committee.
