Welcome to mass in the City Church of Rotterdam

The citychurch Het Steiger in Rotterdam Centre is a spot to rest and meditate and meet people. It has been attracting Christian and others for years. Our Vision is is that the Loyal and Merciful God and His Son Jesus Christ may and should be freely discussed in the city. We also understand that the city is a place for people of different faiths and philosophies, cultures and religions to meet on equal terms.

Our church, originally a Roman Catholic parish church has become ecumenical in its outlook. We believe that it is essential for Christian churches to jointly profess their faith in the way that Jesus of Nazareth has shown us to go. Jointly with the other churches we wish to engage in interreligious dialogue and cooperation and thus contribute to improving the future of our town. One of the visible consequences of this ecumenical movement is that ministers of differing religious denominations lead the services.

From the Dominican tradition, we strongly believe in the characteristics of its tradition, namely meditation, prayer, reflection on the reality of life, preaching the gospel and democracy. We hope you will feel at home with us.
