This Christmas season during the carol singing we will be yarnbombing the square on the Spui with knitted angels. The angels represent the eternal message of God’s love for everyone. We will be offering the angels – free – to passers-by – a small act spreading a bit of love around. In case you’re unfamiliar with yarnbombing, here are some examples!

Please come along with your needles and wool (any colour) and we’ll knit together. If you prefer you can use one of our starter packs (wool, needles, pattern), which will be available when we meet in the church. A donation for these would be gratefully received.

We also invite those who can’t knit to participate – decorating the angels, working out ways to hang them up, involving the institutions around the Spui – there is no getting out of this one 😉

And if you feel you’d like to offer a donation to help with the purchase of materials there will a box for donations in the vestibule every Sunday morning. To give you an idea of cost: wool for an angel costs approx. € 0.25, knitting needles cost € 1, materials for hanging up and publicity are not calculated yet. So as you can see, a small donation goes a long way.

If you have any questions or ideas please get in touch with Sally Stone ( or Gillian Walker (
