For several months now, the links between PARCUM-CRKC and Open Churches have been strengthened. After all, both organisations are striving to open up the religious buildings as much as possible, even outside the hours of the celebrations. Open Churches has been working on this for many years and the number of members is still growing every year. PARCUM-CRKC has built up a lot of expertise in the field of security and management of church buildings. And it is precisely the concern for the safety of the church building that often makes it difficult for church councils to turn their church into an "open church".
Our religious and cultural heritage in its diversity and uniqueness is presentable. The doors should be open not only to tourists, but also to the locals, so that they can admire the well-preserved churches.
Experience the Flemish Masters in 45 churches, chapels, monasteries, beguinages, castles and town halls, from Bocholt to Nieuwpoort. From 1 June to 30 September 2019
Discover our exhibition "The Unusual in Religious Buildings" at Our Lady of the Rosary church in Moha (Wanze) and enjoy this church adorned with stained glass windows in a thousand colours, which celebrates precisely the centenary of its reconstruction.
During the first weekend of June, Open Churches annually put our religious heritage in the spotlight. For this 12th edition, we propose to you to experience "Emotions".
