Kerkennacht – Churches Night – June 19-20


Kerkennacht (“Churches Night”) is a biannual ecumenical event where dozens of churches, chapels and monasteries in the country open their doors and welcome visitors.

In Utrecht, at 19.00 on June 19 Dries van Agt, former prime minister and cycling fanatic, will open the event in the Domkerk and present the theme Tour of the Soul.  A creative and personal ‘layman sermon’ is given by former soap star Funda Müjde.  Also the new event Utrecht Church Dictation is held on this evening.

At Holy Trinity Church in Utrecht, Mofish will give a benefit concert on the 20th beginning at 19.00 to raise funds for Imibala, a charity for education of children in South Africa, and the church will also be open after the concert for any visitors from the city.
