Planted in the Garden
At The Garden, we celebrate life together in home groups. We meet each other during weekdays in several locations. We believe home groups are essential to strengthen each other and build each other up while we journey together in life with God. In the home groups, we do Bible studies and we support each other.
Besides regular home groups, we also have interest groups, in which we enjoy common interests and hobbies like baking or studying a specific Bible topic.
There are more than ten groups, so no matter what your interest is or what season of life you are in, there is always a group to suit you.
If you would like to know more, please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
BRAVE (teenagers 12-17 years)
We are BRAVE – a safe place where teenagers (ages 12-17) can grow in their faith. We meet every twice a month on Friday evenings, either in Hilversum or Soest. The meetings are for boys and girls together.
Our aim is to get to know God and His Word more, to become passionate for Jesus, strong in our faith and wise in how we live our lives. Of course we also have fun together :) We usually start the meetings with some games and snacks, then we listen to a devotional thought from the Bible and afterwards discuss what we’ve learned. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
“Be alert, stand firm in the faith, be BRAVE, be strong.” (1 Cor. 16:13)
We are the young adult group (ages 18-25) from The Garden. We have just finished the Freedom In Christ course as a group and now we are planning for the time ahead. More information will soon be shared!
BIBLE STUDY GROUP
The Bible Study Group is for young adults who like to dive deeper into Gods word. We speak a mix of English and Dutch with each other.
We gather every two weeks on Thursday evenings from 19.30 – 21.30 at someone’s home (in Hilversum or nearby). We start with sharing how we are doing and how our week with God was.
After that we study the Bible together to discover how God speaks to us. We also enjoy meeting up for fun for a BBQ or boardgames.

WOMEN’S GROUP HILVERSUM
This homegroup is for women, and we meet on a Thursday night. It is a mix of Dutch and International women.
Since time is always short on a homegroup evening to really get to know each other and share our lives, we meet weekly. The one week we dig into God’s word and prayer. The other week focusses on connecting to each other and fellowship, to have time to enjoy being together and for prayer. Some of these evenings we can eat together or do other nice activities.
Last year we did a course on God’s Grace by Freedom in Christ ministries. This year we focus on growth in our relationship with God. We will learn more about prayer and will focus on listening to God’s voice.
You are very welcome to join!
MEN’S GROUP (ENGLISH)
Life is a journey and we love to share our experiences, highs and lows. We are an English speaking men’s group and we meet every other week on a Wednesday evening. There’s ample time for an informal talk and for sharing what we experience in daily life, in our families, in the workplace. Most of the time, we also talk about last Sunday’s church service and what it meant to us. In prayer we share our lives and pray for the people around us. You are very welcome to join!
The Travellers Home Group is an English-speaking group in Huizen for anyone who would like to develop their Christian faith by going deeper into the Bible or sermons and joining together in prayer and fellowship with other Christians.

The prayer home groups are meetings in which we gather together to thank God and to present Him our needs and prayer points. We pray because Jesus taught us to do so and because we know that God answers the prayers of his children. The Bible is so clear about it: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
The group is bilingual and we meet in Soest and Hilversum.

Shine is a bilingual (English/Dutch) group for everyone who wants to grow in his or her relationship with Jesus. Through worship, Bible study, video’s and of course through relationships we will dive into questions like: How can I come closer to Jesus? How can I hear the Holy Spirit? How do the gifts of the Spirit work? How can I apply the assignment of Mark 16:15 – 20 in my life? Besides this we want to teach you how to share the gospel in a practical and accessible way to the people around you. By doing this together, we learn from each other and can grow in a safe setting to become a shining light for Jesus.
We will meet every other week on Friday night from 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm in our house in Amersfoort-Noord (next to the A1). Looking forward to meeting you!
