Review Regional lunch March 5

On March 5, ICP organized a regional lunch at Blend Bloemhof in Rotterdam. It was a wonderful time with 14 people in which we were also able to learn more about intercultural marriage. Corina Mushikangondo is putting the finishing touches to her book about ‘love between two cultures’. A beautiful, challenging and extremely important topic for the churches within our network.

Read here some experiences of pastors and pioneers who participated in the regional lunch:

“For me it was a meaningful meeting because I met some people from other churches in the network… I also found the introduction to the theme of ‘intercultural marriages’ useful, even though I have known Corina for some time and have heard her speak about it before. . There were also some new insights for me…”

“It’s a nice way to meet each other from different municipalities. I also found the theme very appealing and the way it was presented was nice. I am very curious about the book. I am grateful that I was able to attend this lunch and will definitely do it again.”

“Delicious lunch, very well organized! And it’s still cool to meet different pioneers. Very inspired by Corina and looking forward to her book. Definitely worth the drive to the cool Blend. Thanks.”

ICP organizes regional lunches throughout the Netherlands. For example, a lunch is planned for Friday, June 14, 2024 in Zwolle. Other cities will follow. The regional lunch is a great opportunity to meet leaders from all kinds of churches.

Collaboration Micha Netherlands and ICP

Micha Nederland and ICP will work together to discuss themes such as equality and inclusion in churches.

In 2023, ICP launched ‘More color in the church’; free interactive material for small groups on the themes of racism, diversity and reconciliation. View the website here and download the free material.

Following this project, Micha Netherlands and ICP decided in January 2024 to work together on this joint mission:How can we start the conversation about social justice church-wide?

As churches we can mean a lot in our society. We can be a witness of Christ and spread His message in many ways, not only with words but also with our actions. Social justice is a theme that challenges us as the ‘church of today’ to take our place, practically live out our hearts and faith and make a difference in the world, near and far.

We believe in ‘together’ and are very hopeful about the fruits that this collaboration with Micha Nederland will produce.

Church Tour 2024-2025 ICP Worship

Book a worship leader + one hour of equipment for free between April ’24 and April ’25…

Since 2021, ICP has been working with Paul Hagayi, a Congolese worship leader with a lot of experience, talent and passion when it comes to worship in intercultural churches. ICP has developed a worship training together with Paul that helps intercultural worship teams to grow in worship in their own local context.

This season, Paul (in collaboration with ICP) makes himself available free of charge to lead worship on Sundays in intercultural churches, preferably in collaboration with the local worship team and the congregation.

This is what Paul himself says about it: “This year from April 2024 to April 2025 I would like to encourage churches to go to the heart of worship. I am therefore freely offering my services as a worship leader to come and worship with the congregation during one of the Sunday services.”

Paul can independently provide worship during the service, but can also work together with the local team and in doing so inspire and encourage not only the congregation but also the worship team.

After the service he is available to discuss intercultural worship with the worship team. We are also available at ICP to inspire, support and encourage.

Paul: “We can talk about how to worship with people from different cultural backgrounds; share our experiences and learn from each other.”
