We invest ourselves in ministries of local churches for families and children. That's one way of how we meet people in the neighbourhood.
Every second Wednesday, we partner with the protestant-reformed church Hirzenbach in a ministry called Kids-Treff 8051. The Kids-Treff is open for children from Zurich-Schwamendingen. The children originate from different backgrounds. Through those fun afternoons, we are able to build relationships with the children and follow up on personal visits as well.
At the same time, we offer German conversational classes for the children's mothers. Through that, we meet the mothers in the neighbourhood, form friendships with them and given them the opportunity to meet other mothers in the neighbourhood. We are able to share about our lives and help them settle in the area.
We help organize holiday camps in the summer and winter, a project initiated by the protestant-reformed church Hirzenbach.
In November and December, we organise candle dipping throughout four weeks for schools or individual groups. We share the Christmas story while the children use their creativity to make their very own candle.
