English Holy Communion and Worship & Prayer Service in the Breiðholts-church
– International Congregation in the Breiðholts-church

Gathering in English is held on every Sunday except on last Sunday of the month. The gathering begins at 2pm. Worship & Prayer service is hold on the 1st and 3rd Sunday, Holy Communion is held and on the 2nd Sunday of the month (could be moved to 3rd Sunday sometimes).

In the Worship & Prayer Service, the interpretation in Farsi follows usually, and it is because of there are many Farsi- speaking participants who don’t understand English well. We try to provide more languages in the interpretation if it is necessary.

Toshiki Toma pastor serves and Örn Magnússon plays piano and regularly teaches singing new hymns. Asociating pastor is Rev. Magnús Björn Björnsson, perish priest of the Breiðholts-church.
Fellowship time with coffie follows the meetngs at the congregational hall. Those who want to join the Christian fellowship or to learn about Christianity are all welcome.

Social evening & Alpha course

The International Congregation of the Breiðholts-church launched a new activity, that would increase the fellowship among congregational members, and at the same time provide for the participants opportunity to get to know the Christian faith and understand it better.

This event is “Social evening & Alpha course” and it is held once a month (usually on the 3rd Friday evening). There we eat dinner together and then talk together along the Alpha carriculam. Alpha is very popular program for introducing Christianity to non-Christians world widely in many churches. Not at all difficult, just fun!

Seekers prayer meeting; Háteigs-church

 


Seekers prayer meeting at the Háteigs-church

Seekers prayer meeting is a community for prayer that is especially designed for asylum seekers in Iceland. But many of those who “used to be asylum seekers” (accepted as refugees) are participating, too. The meeting is also open for others who want to pray for asylum seekers/refugees and wish their well being.

The name of “Seekers” is coming from the idea that we all must be looking for something in our own lives on earth as well as actual asylum seekers as refugees.

Seekers prayer meeting at the Háteigs-church is held on Thurdsdays 15:00. Rev. Eva Björk Valdimarsdóttir and Rev. Ása Laufey Sæmundsdóttir (both district priest of Reykjavík west deanery) serve together with Toshiki Toma, pastor for immigrants.
