GREATEST GIFT FESTIVAL 2015
With heart and soul, over 150 volunteers from 20 different churches and organizations offered a free Christmas for the less fortunate. Diverse people, Nigerians, Chinese, Brazilians, Arabs, Ghanaians, Filipinos, Dutch, Greeks, Congolese, Americans, Angolans... served together all the families and individuals who came from different social organizations and agencies to the annual Greatest Gift Festival celebration every December.
The classical piano alternated with gypsy violin music, gospel singers and bands which included Capelle singers, drama and modern dance. This stunning artistic program was accompanied by a three-course meal, a special children's programme and lots of gifts. The organizers pampered their guests this Christmas and warmed their hearts with hope.
"What's under your Christmas tree?" was the question that was asked in the crowded hall.
Attention to the real meaning of Christmas was given during the evening, aiming to restore the significance of what we celebrate this season.
Although the people at the event were themselves in need, they were moved with compassion and contributed from their heart towards the Koinonia Street Children project in Uganda, when it was presented.
Your feedback, remarks and prayers are highly appreciated.

Christmas season - GREATEST GIFT FESTIVAL 2015
Saturday 19th of December 2015 at the Feestzaal-Kielpark of Antwerp-Kiel from 17.00 to 22.00
The true Christmas spirit is the aim of the 5th Greatest Gift Festival which will take place on Saturday 19 of December 2015 at the Feestzaal-Kielpark of Antwerp-Kiel from 17h. Together with churches from Antwerp, we invite you to share the love of God with the less fortunate in our city during the Christmas season.
The images of the recent refugee waves have baffled all of us. Nonetheless, there is also poverty here at home. For many, this time of the year emphasises their loneliness, their inability to do something for those they love and an even greater difference between poverty and welfare...
The day includes gospel performances, three course meal, special children's programme, children's entertainment, a raffle and a small gift for all the children.
