Kerk & Buurt (Walk-in centre / second hand shop)

This is a project from Kerk en Buurt (Church and Neighbourhood) that is located in the Westerpark. The project is related to the Nassaukerk in the west of Amsterdam.For 25 years Kerk en Buurt has several succesfull projects in this neighbourhood. All these projects rely for a great deal on the efforts of volunteers.

There is a dinerproject called Filah, a secondhand shop and a walk-in centre called De Schakel. Besides that there are many creative projects like the neighbourproject, the silence room, a music project and possibilities for your own ideas!

The Second-hand shop is opened from Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 – 14.00

In the second-hand shop you can find cheap clothes and furniture. Volunteers pick up used furniture and fix them together with homeless people: after that they can be sold.

We are a community of believing and non-believing people that together try to do wonderfull things that enrich our own lifes and the lifes of others.

Besides our regular activities there are always possibilities for creative new activitities.
