Join as a church

Corona and it’s measurements are back. And as Gert Jan Segers of the ChristenUnie said  it may be even more difficult than the first wave.
We would like to work with you as a church in reaching those Amsterdammers who are now being hit so hard. The churches are already doing a lot in this, we are doing this too. We believe that we can do even more together. In these autumn days we are already busy with the preparations for Christmas with Present, Burennetwerk and Serve the City. For years now, we have been making an extra effort for lonely Amsterdammers around Christmas. And this year it is even more necessary. That is why we want to make a lot of very beautiful Christmas packages this year for Amsterdammers in vulnerable situations, such as undocumented people, lonely elderly people, people with a disability and we want to put make children happy in Sinterklaas times!
We would like to invite you to join us and we would also like to think along with you about what is appropriate for your church & congregation, for example.
Would you like to help us by:
  • Make storage and distribution space available: we are looking for a church in every district where things for the Christmas packages can be stored and where the Christmas packages can be put together and distributed. We provide volunteers, but if volunteers are available from the churches, we would love to hear that!
  • Do you know vulnerable people in the neighborhood or from the church congregation who could use a nice Christmas gift? Then we ask you to pass a number to us, so that they also receive a Christmas package from the church, which has been put together by us.
  • If you want to support us financially, that is always possible!
Do you want to participate, do you want us to think along with you? Please contact us via the contact form or by sending us an email to
