How many times are we seized, in a corner of a church, by an intriguing object, a mysterious symbol or a grimaceous face? Sometimes it is a ray of light, a strange arrangement or a contrasting artistic creation that surprises us. The unusual can be discovered in many religious buildings, past and present.
Do not forget to book our travelling exhibition and its 56 "unusual" photos for your church. An invitation to (re)discover the religious heritage with new eyes...
On 5 and 6 June, the 14th "JEO" will be held throughout Belgium. In 2019, more than 500 places of worship will offer a weekend of rich and varied activities to an unusual public. In 2021, with the theme "Church, red thread", let's try to beat this record! Online registration is extended until 31 March.
In spite of the health crisis and its share of restrictions, the four national entities of the Open Churches network have found different ways to continue to promote the religious heritage and to open it up to as many people as possible.
Discover our new brochure with almost 500 sacred places to discover in Belgium, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
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.
