The Story So Far
In 2020, Celebration Church’s Lead Pastor Sebastiaan van Wessem and his family moved to Almere. Early 2023 the Lord started to break his heart for this city. Around 225.000 people live in Almere, but only a small percentage of these people attend church.
In light of this huge need, the Lord began to stir his heart to pioneer a new Celebration Church in Almere that would focus on discipleship and life transformation. Supernaturally, God connected him with people in the city who have a similar passion to see God break through in revival in Almere.
So in May 2023 pastor Sebastiaan, together with Sebastiaan Boonstra and a few other people, started their first Bible study group in Almere (Nobelhorst), patterned after the way the early church studied the Bible. This method is used successfully in countries where there is severe persecution of Christians.
Besides the Bible studies, a few interest nights have been held to share Celebration Church’s vision for the city of Almere. Also, we have done a few outreaches in the center of Almere, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom and spreading a sound of praise and worship in the streets of Almere and the central station. And this is only the start of the amazing things God has in store for us and the city!
