A Network in the heart of Europe

Open Churches believes that churches are of the public domain and they should be open for visitors. They are not just for religious purposes, but as village centres, a representation of social life, a cultural space, and a touristic site.

Open Churches is a network of « open and welcoming churches » in the heart of Europe. Thanks to this website, the visitors will be able to discover which buildings belong to the ‘Open Churches’ with information about the opening times, descriptions, photos, highlighted elements of the church, information on events, etc.

The organization’s main goals are to Empower religious heritage and make it accessible for the local population, to create the correct atmosphere that will help visitors discover the richness of our religious heritage, and to organize social activities such as concerts and exhibitions to bring people closer to religious heritage and involve them in its safeguarding.

The Open Churches network is now present in Belgium, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, coordinated by regional entities.
