During term-time ecumenical church services in Dutch are held on Sundays from 11.00 to 12.00 am (except in July-August).
Every Wednesday a group of students gather together in the church of our chaplaincy for a 30 minutes prayer inspired by the ecumenical monastery of Taizé (France). In addition to singing Taizé songs, there is room for silence, personal prayer and a reading from the Bible. Everyone is welcome and there is tea and coffee afterwards.
