Fresh! “There is a time for everything”
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. The Fresh evenings have been a wonderful opportunity to worship and connect with God in a creative atmosphere. However, for the last several months we have been considering the future of the Fresh meetings. Although community moments of reflection, worship and prayer, besides Sunday gatherings, are still part of fulfilling the mission, we felt that Fresh! is just not fresh anymore. We will be looking for other means of facilitating worship and prayer in our community but for now the Saturday night Fresh meetings will not be happening anymore. Keep praying and let’s see what might open up in the future.
In April 2010 the first concert with Crossnotes classical music ensemble took place at the Zonnensteinzaal in Amstelveen. 10 musicians, willing to offer their musical talents to collect money for the Crossroads care team emergency fund, gathered to prepare a classical music concert. It was a very successful experiment, the hall was full, and afterwards we decided to organise other concerts to collect money for other charities we believed in. The second concert, in December 2010, we were able to play in the beautiful Noorderkerk, covered in snow. The collected funds went to Serve the City Amsterdam.
