Support Sunny

SunnyWe meet in moments of prayers and in fun times but there are other unavoidable moments when we need each other like for supporting one of us having to say goodbye to a loved one.  That is what happened to Sunny who lost his mother Augustine back home as you may know.

On Sunday 16th of August after coffee and tea, as a community,  we will go to visit him and his family.  To avoid that he has to spend much trying to welcome us in his home, it would be handy if you can bring a bottle of juice to share with others while keeping him and his family company.  Drinks will be put together in the coffee and tea room from where we will depart from and where his address will be announced. If you want to support him, you can do it personally when there.

May God bless you!

Bike ride

BikingDo you enjoy riding a bicycle, explore the creation or just being with others?  Hoping the weather will cooperate, we are inviting you to join us for a journey on a bicycle to Zeist via Bunnik on the 22nd of August. We will picnic somewhere in the nature of Zeist.
Please keep that day free in your agenda, more specific information will follow.
