Find a church

The charter

The churches that wish to enter the project "Open and welcoming churches" undertake to do so:

  • To keep the church open for visitors for 8 consecutive weeks between 1 June and 30 September: 3 days a week (usually Friday, Saturday and Sunday), 4 hours a day (usually from 10 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 4 pm).
  • To equip the church for the reception with brochures about the church, information about the parish life, a guest book and also to create a hospitable atmosphere (e.g. flowers, background music).
  • If necessary, to provide volunteers for the reception during opening hours and to train them.
  • To keep a complete inventory of the valuable objects that are part of the patrimony and to secure these objects.
  • Open the church during the Open Churches Days on Saturdays or Sundays from 10am to 6pm at least.
  • The affiliated church may use the "Open Churches" logo for promotion or to guide visitors to the church. The logo is a registered trademark and may only be used in that form.

The right to use the logo may be revoked if it is found that the obligations entered into have not been complied with.
