Our services are every Sunday at 10:30 am in Amsterdam and at 4:00 pm in Almere. In Amsterdam, you are welcome to join us in the visitor lounge after service where you can enjoy the best coffee and our hosts love to help you. Of course, we also take very good care of our visitors in Almere.
We regularly organize Welcome Parties where we briefly share more about C3 Church, our vision and our values. More importantly, it is a chance for us to get to know you better and to help you find your place in church life. Want to know when the next Welcome Party is? Send us a message and you will receive a personal invite.
Connect groups are the heart of our church. These small groups meet during the week at different locations in our cities. Connect groups are the place where you grow as a follower of Christ. It is where you’ll find friendship, encouragement and fun. We would love to help you find the right connect group for you. Please fill in our contact form if you are looking for one.
C3MEN, EveryWoman, C3Young Adults and C3YOUTH are our communities. Every community has their own activities. Each year we host a men’s conference and a women’s conference. Our youth and young adults meet regularly throughout the year. Please check out Communities for more information.
Baptism is an important step in the life of every christian. Through baptism we identify ourselves with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We let go of our old life and as we are raised out of the water we rise into newness of life. Would you like to know more about baptisms, join us at the next info session.
The Essentials is a five week course about the basic principles of the Christian faith. We cover topics such as sin and salvation, the Holy Spirit, prayer and the Bible, the church and water baptism. Groups are small so there is always enough time for questions.
The Challenge is all about going deeper. Each year we offer at least two modules. New Testament Studies, Leadership and Identity in Christ are only a few example. A module covers a period of 8-9 weeks. Each lesson consists of a video lecture from C3 College Online and facilitator-led activities.
Each year we organize three conferences: our church conference, Encounters, the Everywoman Conference and the C3MEN Conference. Both locations gather together for two or three days of worship, refreshing and empowerment. We put everything aside for an encounter with God.
The first and primary form of pastoral care is through connect groups. Your connect group leader is your pastor. This is why we encourage everyone to join a connect group. If you are not in one or you need extra pastoral support, please contact our office. Please also contact us if you are planning to get married or would like to have your baby dedicated.
One Hour is our prayer meeting and takes place in Amsterdam every first Monday of the month. The evening starts at 7:30 pm and finishes at 8:30 pm. We begin with worship and a short bible study, after which we pray together for our church, for our cities and more.
In C3 Church we build church together. Each week more than 100 volunteers work hard to pull together our Sunday services, our many projects and our other activities. Hosts, barista’s, musicians, designers, administrative talents – there is a place for everyone and everyone is needed. Interested in joining a team? Let us know!
If you have been serving enthusiastically in one of our teams for a while you might become team leader. We believe that church is a place for us to grow, not just in faith, but also in our skills. Team leadership is not about position, but about discipleship. You have something someone else needs.
Beyond is part of Vision Builders and includes local as well as international mercy projects.Beyond takes us beyond our church walls to the world around us. We partner with Compassion, support New Hope Moldova and help new church in their first years. We are also active in our own region and frequently team up with local organizations.
For everyone who is looking for practical ministry experience we offer the possibility of an internship. In addition to serving on a team during Sunday service, interns also work at the C3 office during the week. As an intern you will be assigned a mentor who is there to support and challenge you. The new Internship starts in 2016.
We believe that it is God’s desire for you to live your best life, that you walk in the gifts God has given you and that you use them for His kingdom. Living on purpose means growing in spiritual maturity, so that your life is an example to others. A person who lives on purpose makes their decisions based on the word of God and inspires others to believe for greater things and to expect more.
Connect group leaders form the pastoral network of our church. They have a passion for God and a heart for people. Connect group leadership is open to anyone who is actively involved in church life and who is a part of an existing connect group. There are several training moments throughout the year for future, beginning, and existing connect group leaders.
