Justification for the establishment of CLC Breda

CLC Breda aims to meet the great demand for a life-giving church that makes a difference in a city by reaching out to all generations. We want to make a difference by supporting the city through our volunteers in projects that are initiated from the local municipality of Breda. In addition, as CLC Breda we have concrete goals, including: looking after the people in Breda and surroundings (including project Adopt a Granny, Single Moms, youth programs such as Young & Free, Sisterhood).

Our target group includes all generations.

Purpose

To make people familiar with the encouraging message of faith in Jesus Christ. To help and equip them in a practical way by preaching and teaching about various areas of daily life. To provide them with a relevant network of friendly relationships through teams and life groups. Inspire them to see others in the city and region as well as in the world around us through involvement, practical help and financial support from various charities including project Adopt a Granny, Single Moms, youth programs such as Young & Free, Sisterhood.

Church activities

The following parts are part of church life:

  • Sunday services with modern hospitality and a positive, hopeful message.
  • Life groups: small groups who come together at home to make the word of Sunday’s sermon practical, deepen friendships and stimulate involvement in each other’s lives.
  • Training evenings: topics on the courses include: basic course Christian faith, leadership, pastoral care, dealing with finances, education, discovering your talents, marriage and preparation for it.
  • Youth evenings for different ages: teenagers have their own activities every Friday. Every summer holiday there is a teen camp. Per age group, there are weekends, a weekend away at a holiday park.
  • Child work. Both during Sunday services as well as holidays and summer camps.
