Christmas

Christmas season at Liberty Church

Christmas Carol Service

Join us online on Christmas Eve at 19:00 for a service of carols celebrating the everlasting light of our saviour Jesus Christ.

Serving Amsterdam this December

What a year it’s been! As 2020 comes to a close, this December we have the privilege of making the end of the year just a little bit easier for individuals and families living in poverty in our city. As a church we are partnering with Serve the City and the Count Me In initiative.

There are several corona-safe ways to get involved:

  • making a Christmas box for people living in poverty
  • making pancakes for those who may be feeling isolated
  • volunteering time
  • giving a financial donation

So we would encourage you to choose a way that suits you, and love our city in a tangible way this Christmas. Please mention that you are a member of Liberty Church when you sign up. Thanks!
