    Our location is easily accessible by public transportation via bus lines from Hoofddorp Station to Graan voor Visch.

  • Will there be childcare for my children?

    For ages 1-12 there is kids’ church. At kids church your kids will have the opportunity to experience church with their peers and get to enter into the living relationship with God themselves. 

  • Is there translation available?

    For both services, there is live translation from Dutch to English and English to Dutch. For this, you can easily download the free ‘interactio’ app to listen directly from your own mobile device. Ask one of our team members for help if needed.

  • How long will the service be?

    We really value time in Gods presence, so our goal is not to get you out quick, but to get you out encouraged, strengthened and build up for the week. Our average service lasts about 2.5 hours.

    Parking at our locations is almost always free in the surrounding residential areas. If you do want to park closer you can use the paid parking garages.
