  • Exhibition "Claude Klimsza, sculptorClaude Klimsza is an artist who invites reflection. He challenges our preconceived ideas, often with a touch of humour, and opens up a new space for us. His terrain is his faith. A powerful evangelical inspiration unites his works and unfolds the multiple facets of a Good News that crosses centuries, cultures and materials.He carves the Gospel into all the materials he touches. Sometimes quality wood, steel, bronze, sometimes much more modest materials, wires, photos, pieces of...

  • The association Open Churches offers you a travelling exhibition of 56 photos on the theme of "The unusual in religious building". The selected pictures show the curious, mystical, fantastic look... and the offbeat humour of many photographers, amateurs or professionals. A great tool to invite the faithful and visitors to be challenged by the mysteries of your church.

    From the Middle Ages onwards, the cloth industry brought prosperity to Flanders and the villages in the Westhoek. When the necessary supply of English wool stopped in the early 16th century, unemployment and the economy came to a standstill. Speculation with the grain supply caused the inhabitants to rebel against the administrative power. Church leaders also share in the blame, partly because the German church reformer Luther published the Bible in the vernacular. The rebels called themselves Beggars (an old...

    Nowadays, Nieuwkerke lies on the border with France. Until 1713, the border of Flanders lay further into France until the town of Saint-Omer (on the Aa). A few decades before the Treaty of Utrecht (1713), the French king Louis XIV occupied this area. With this Peace, the Kasselrijen Belle-Ambacht and Cassel, among others, were added to the French crown: Nieuwkerke and Dranouter belonged to Belle-Ambacht and Westouter to Cassel. From 1769 onwards, border corrections are carried out along the entire...

    On 8 November 2014, a Canadian delegation from Toronto came to bring back an object to this church. During WWI, the church lay in ruins and Canadian soldiers watched over this village. A chaplain entered the ruins and saved an altar stone from destruction. After some wanderings and service in a Canadian church, this altar stone disappeared into the archives cupboard. When the archives were checked in the spring of 2014, the indications on the reverse showed where the stone...

    The last thematic exhibition of the "80/70 Commemorations", GHOSTS & MISSING PERSONS may seem enigmatic... but it is! GHOSTS for all the furniture planned by the architect Simon Brigode but which never saw the light of day... MISSING PERSONS, for all the pieces which have been "lost" over the centuries or which, having escaped the destruction of 11 May 1940, have... "gone astray" or have, alas, been stolen or altered since then...
