About us


For several years, Connect, a Christian international student group, has been active in Tilburg. Our goal is to be of service to foreign students: to provide hospitality and help you feel at home in the lowlands, hoping that you will have a good and enriching time here.

Currently, our main activities are the Eat & Meet-evenings, which we organise every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.

Connect is associated with IFES-Netherlands (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students). In addition to its work among Dutch students, IFES supports ministries to international students in the Netherlands. IFES is currently ministering in about 20 cities throughout the country. Furthermore, IFES organizes a number of conferences each year for which you are also gladly invited.


The Ontmoetingskerk is a Dutch Protestant church (Ontmoeting means 'encounter' and kerk is 'church'). We are characterised by a strong Biblical foundation and open for people from all backgrounds. We have about 200 members (age 0-87), a full-time pastor, Sunday services and prayer meetings / small groups during the week.

In September 2011 we will start with monthly International Church Services in which we want to welcome people from all cultural backgrounds. We are different in colour and culture, but we are one in our Lord Jesus Christ. We hope that the cultural diversity in these services will be an enriching experience both for International and Dutch attendants.

Every third Sunday of the month we organise social events in which we share meals and have fun.

Whatever the situation you are in, whether you're a Christian or not, feel free to come as you are. You're very welcome!
