At the English Reformed Church, we love taking photos of our activities together. At special events, we create a slideshow accompanied by some nice music. Have a look at some of the events from 2016, 2017 & 2018 – to either relive some special moments in good company or to get an impression of our community.
Yarnbombing on the Spui Square
About 700 hundred of tiny knitted angels descended on the Spui on Sunday, December 22nd to remind us of the good news brought by many angels years ago. During the carol singing after our service the knitted angels were handed out as a symbol of God’s love for everyone.

Summer picnic 2017
At the last Sunday of the summer, our church broke bread with people from the World House in their lovely garden. The weather was perfect for a picnic and for sharing all the exciting international dishes people brought along. And for a game of the mighty smite of course.

A Victorian Christmas Evening
On December the 8th 2016 our church was packed for a Victorian Christmas Evening organised to benefit the Mulanje Mission Hospital (MMH). It was a great success and everyone got into the Christmas spirit by enjoying food and drink, shopping at the festive market stalls, and listening to seasonal music.
And the master storyteller, Ashley Ramsden, gave a joyous (but scarry) retelling of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
Harvest Thanksgiving 2016
