We welcome you, newcomer!
We are a friendly, open church that is highly international and with lots of children! We love our Lord Jesus and all people and desire to serve Him and everyone. ALCB is a welcoming community, and we are looking forward to having you in worship or at an event.
Most of us are from different parts of the world, we know what it is like to be new in the Brussels area. Perhaps you or your family is in a transition. No matter what part of the world you come from, it is nice to have a place to come to that has caring people who most likely have experienced the same transition. The people of this congregation come from many countries, making it a church open to all people, no matter what their nationality or religion.
How can we help you at this time?
In His service and yours,
Pastor Matthias Tepper
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
- Romans 15:7
