Starts in October.
What happens at Pentecost? What is the story behind Carnival? What is an Advent wreath and why do we celebrate Christmas?
Our Integration Course “Christianity” provides insight into the Christian roots of our country’s customs and culture. We want to answer the questions of people who have not grown up in a culture influenced by Christianity.
We show the content and meaning of the stories in the Bible, and how modern people these days read holy texts in a way that gives them relevance to their daily lives. We explain what we Christians believe, how we try to live, how we profess our faith. We explain why Sunday is a day of rest, what we celebrate at Christmas and how the celebration is prepared during Advent season. Carnival, Easter, Ascension Day, Entrecote, Thanksgiving – there are so many things in this society that one cannot possibly know or understand unless one has grown up with them.
All are welcome: Christians and those who want to join our faith, curious and interested members of other religions, and people without religious affiliation who want to solve a few of these mysteries for themselves.
We look forward to meet you!
