City Life Church Breda was established with the desire to be a church where everyone feels welcome as well as at home, where you are allowed to come as you are and grow to life as God intended for you. Three important parts of our vision are:

  • Worship God – our relationship upward
  • To love ourselves and each other – our relationship inwardly
  • Serving our community – our relationship to the outside world

The church is a place of encouragement and worship where you connect with God and with each other. In this place guests become family and friends. We are building a growing and inspiring church in which young and old with great pleasure and freedom are given the space to develop their full potential of gifts and talents and to put them to work for God, for each other and the world around us.

Isaiah 43:4: “Because I found you precious, I have chosen you. I love you so much.”

Robert & Anastasia van den Bergh

Hi, we are Robert and Anastasia and the pastors of City Life Church Breda.

Anastasia: “I have been active for years as a coach, trainer and consultant in the field of leadership and sustainability. Since my first Hillsong Colour Conference in 2011, my heart has started to burn for building a church in Breda. A place where you are always welcome regardless of your background. And where you are there for each other. Where the seed that God has planted in you blossoms. Especially with women I see so many opportunities for even more identity and potential. In a world where there is so much need for light, life and love, I want our church to shine like a beacon of light in Breda.

Robert lived and worked in Breda for years and came to faith at a young age.
“As a youth leader I received the affirmation to build a church, but it was not yet clear where and when. Since we both got a heart for the city of Breda, we decided to return to build a church there with a group of enthusiastic people, which is meaningful and encourages people to get to know each other and Jesus better. A church that cares about others, a church that gives life!

We hope to meet you soon at City Life Church Breda!

Our church is part of CLC Family, a family of churches in the Netherlands and Belgium. Senior pastors are Erald and Mathilde van de Ridder.
