Are you a student in search for God?

In Tilburg there are many international students. These students do a bachelor-, master- or PhD-study and some stay in Tilburg after their study to work in The Netherlands. To give these internationals a home, the Ontmoetingskerk started a project focusing on offering hospitality. We want to welcome you in our community and hope that you can make Dutch and international friends during your stay.

Check out the website of Host Tilburg for more information.

Who are we here for?

We are here for anyone who is looking for God or desires God to be in his or her life. People who want to participate fully are welcome. People who have their questions or concerns about God are also welcome. You don't have to become a member immediately. You can also be a guest member or visitor. If you do not like Sunday church services with many people and stimuli, you could join a small circle. That too can help to ensure that God is in your life.

What does participating bring you?

Hanging out with other Christians is going to give you support and strength to put the love of Jesus Christ into practice in your daily life.
