You might wonder how this church will feel, so we have composed these Frequently Asked Questions. If you have other questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: What kind of church is this?
A: We are an interdenominational, English-speaking international church that welcomes people from all backgrounds, whether traditionally religious or not. Our focus is to gather together for the purpose of building relationships and exploring a relationship with God.
Q: What does a Sunday meeting look like at The Bridge?
A: Sunday meetings at The Bridge include a time of contemporary worship music and a message from the Bible that is relevant for life in today’s world. Following the meeting, you are invited to stay for a cup of coffee or tea and connect with the diverse community of The Bridge.
Q: What should I wear?
A: There is no dress code at The Bridge. Feel free to wear what is comfortable for you. We welcome you to be yourself.
Q: How long is a Sunday meeting?
A: Sunday meetings last about 75 minutes.
Q: Is membership expected after attending a Sunday meeting?
A: No. The Bridge seeks to offer a meaningful community that is relevant in an international context. We want you to experience this community without feeling pressured into becoming a member. “Membership” is first expressed through active involvement in the life of the church, but is also formally offered as an administrative process once or twice each year.
Q: Is there anything for children?
A: The Bridge offers an engaging, high-energy, age-appropriate environment that is designed for children ages 0 to 12. Children will experience stories from the Bible through activities that are fun and age-appropriate.
Q: Is there anything for teenagers?
A: The Bridge offers a group especially for teenagers (13-18). This group currently meets on Sunday mornings during the 12:00 service. (see “Real Life” on the Small Group page)
Q: What is your theological perspective?
A: We are evangelicals, believing that the Bible is the Word of God and that all people need to personally know and experience God through Jesus Christ. We believe in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in each person’s life, and that God is at work in the world today.
Q: Who are your pastors accountable to, or where do they receive their credentials to be ministers from?
A: Kelly Delp, our lead pastor, is ordained by the Assemblies of God in the United States, and has served in various pastoral roles in Europe and the US since 2005. Our church and staff, however, is interdenominational in culture and is open to people of all backgrounds. The Bridge is part of the Fellowship of European International Churches.
Q: Are people of other denominations or even other religions welcome to be a part?
A: Anyone is welcome if they would like to move with us toward discovering the way of Jesus and understanding the Bible together.
