Church of St. John and St. Philip, The Hague

Getting Involved

Sundays are busy and exciting days at church, with a variety of church services and other activities for you to participate in.

Altar Guild

The Altar Guild prepares the altar for Holy Communion, tidying up after each service, caring for the church linens, polishing the church silver and brass to keep it shining and bright, preparing the font for baptisms and changing the church hangings to the appropriate colours according to the Christian seasons and feasts.
Contact Person: Angela Katz

Audio/Video Team

The Audio/Video Team takes care of sound, video and recording of sermons during the services. Duties range from very easy (operating the projector, so people can follow the service on the screens), to moderately difficult (operating the mixing desk so the music team sounds good!). No prior technical knowledge is necessary and training will be provided for those interested in joining this team.
