Church groups

Do you want to find more ways of practising your faith as a church? A lot of churches would like more opportunities to show God’s love in their own neighbourhood or city. And that’s fantastic! Present is keen to help you and your church. We’ll pave the way for you to do what you’re good at and what you enjoy doing. We’ll make sure that your help arrives in the right place and that the impact is as great as possible. “Doing good” does not have to be another demand on a busy schedule, but instead can be a way to express your faith in your own time, in your own way, as you want to, and in your own neighbourhood.

For church projects we work very closely with Serve the City and Burennetwerk. If you’re keen to get started, take a look at the opportunities and sign up or contact us.

Opportunities

  • Looking to make a difference as a group (e.g. your prayer group)? Tell us what you want to do, when, where and how big the group is. Present will organise a suitable project for you.
  • Looking to help Amsterdam as a whole church? Take a look at the opportunities offered by Serve the City Amsterdam. StC specialises in organising activity days for churches.
  • Do you want to help members of your local community on your own? The Burennetwerk could be just right for you. The Burennetwerk matches neighbours with each other to help with simple tasks on a flexible basis.
  • Raise awareness of the Micah Course onder de aandacht van uw gemeente. Present is an initiator of this course on doing good and acting justly. Part of the course involves a charitable project.

Present as organiser and coordinator

We organise two types of Present projects for groups:

  • Social projects: cooking for the homeless, organising a sociable games afternoon with physically or mentally handicapped groups, or drinking coffee with elderly members of the community who lack a network.
  • Practical projects: helping someone move house, brightening up or cleaning a home, or tidying a garden.

Our ideas folder is full of examples of great projects.

Our starting point will always be your preferences and availability. Just sign up and we will contact you to discuss your ideal project.
