Bergen is an international village and so is our community of faith. At last count we have 8 different languages represented regularly, English often being the common language among us. By committing to provide everything in both Dutch and English, we're able to facilitate new relationships forming across language barriers. Also, once a month, the preaching is done in English. The other weeks, Dutch is the main language spoken.
What do I do if I don’t understand Dutch?
We want you to be able to engage in the gathering, no matter what language is being spoken. We provide English translation for our gatherings discretely via our smartphone app. All you need to do is download the app to your smartphone (available for Apple and Android devices), pop in your headphones and tap “Tune In”. The live translation stream should start immediately.
Didn’t bring headphones with you? No problem! We’ve got a complementary set for you at the Welcome Table.
