God, the creator, created us in his likeness. And since the very beginning, throughout the history of mankind and of the Church, we have expressed who God is, addressed him in worship and contemplated His being, through that very creativity he has instilled in us. Art is more than a tool. It’s a necessity.
Join us for Art Night on Saturday, October 28 at 1900h at Lyder Sagens gate 7.

The ‘Church Coffee’ of OiC is beloved by all of us. It is the wonderful time directly after the church service where you feel most community-like, can socialize with old and new friends or can get to know new people.
There are some who are responsible for the Church Coffee regularly, but it would be nice if more people would participate, just now and then. We encourage people to bring food from their own culture such that we can celebrate the internationality of the church 🙂
On the sign up form, people can sign up for bringing food, helping with the practical part, or both!
For the food part you can bring whatever you want, fruit, cake, biscuits, soup, spring rolls. The practical part is making coffee and tea and washing the dishes -with a machine- afterwards. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare before church and 30 minutes to clean up after. There is a clear guide in the church coffee box and even if you have questions, there are always others to help out.
The online sign up form for Church Coffee is hosted by Sign Up Genius:
