Being Church Together
Christian international communities are of great value to other churches and to the (Rotterdam) society as a whole. However, they often lack the knowledge and experience that churches that are traditionally based in the Netherlands have. This the reason SKIN-Rotterdam supports Christian international communities in Rotterdam and surroundings. We do this mainly by stimulating mutual contact and joint actions. In this way the communities can learn from each other, exchange experiences and knowledge, not to mention encourage each other. In short: we are a ‘SKIN’ Family!
What do we offer?
As a member of SKIN-Rotterdam, you can count on free* individual advice, courses, workshops, information, networking meetings and excursions. Examples are: information about available housing, help with fundraising, Dutch language lessons. SKIN- Rotterdam represents the interests and makes connections between Christian international communities, government, social organization and indigenous churches. Find more information here: ‘What we do’.
*Non-members can also make use of our offer once free of charge, afterwards they will be asked to join.
SKIN-Rotterdam builds bridges between Christian International communities and native churches by meeting, doing or celebrating things together or “pulpit exchange”. In this way we show that together we are the body of Christ and that unity in diversity is a real strength. Christian international communities and indigenous churches are already working together, for example in campaigns for the neighborhood or in the convent of churches in Rotterdam. Several pastors of the Protestant church participate in our Women in Ministry group.
