ST PAUL'S TERVUREN
WHO WE ARE
St Paul’s, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, is located in the commune of Tervuren on the eastern outskirts of Brussels.
Our congregation comprises many different nationalities and cultures where English may not even be their first language. We gather together with all our varied Christian backgrounds into one multi-generational and loving Christian community.
Our vision is to be an inviting community, welcoming people to know Jesus Christ, equipping them to live and serve, and sending them to proclaim His love.
The mission of St Paul's church is:
To welcome people into our community, offering them opportunities to enter into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
To embrace people from around the world as part of our international Christian fellowship where we value children, young people and adults equally as participants in all areas of our community life.
To equip people to be Spirit-filled, lifelong followers of Jesus, growing in prayer and discipleship of one another.
To grow confident Christians engaging in evangelism, serving our neighbours and caring for our world.
To send people out excited to proclaim the Good News of Jesus through word and deed.
To commission disciples to live and serve in Belgium and around the world.
WHAT WE DO
Some of us were born in Belgium, some of us have arrived here from other countries. For everyone, a warm welcome and hospitality is key to who we are, through the welcome lunches and events, to integrating newcomers into our small groups and giving opportunities to serve. If you would like to meet us and find out more, please use our connect link to introduce yourself to us.
Sunday mornings are our main gathering with informal worship, in-depth Biblical teaching and with our programmes for children and youth running simultaneously. We love meeting together, and encouraging and caring for each other so that we are equipped to follow Jesus in our daily lives. On weekdays, our smaller groups play a really important part in helping people grow in their faith and share and pray with each other. We also run courses for those who want to explore faith for the first time and want a place where they can come with questions and ask whatever they wish.
With people gathered from so many places, understanding our place in the wider world and God's purpose for us is important. Some of our congregation will move on to new parts of the world and be inspired to serve there. Raising awareness, supporting key people and projects, and providing opportunities for serving is the work of our partnership team. Please contact Dominic for details.
