Welcome Hendrick (Erik) Jan Verwoerd as Messy Church Regional Coordinator for the Netherlands. Erik has been a Regional Coordinator in the Netherlands team since May 2018 and now takes on the role as National Coordinator. He is responsible for supporting Fresh Expressions and used to be a missional youth worker on a new housing estate area in Zoetermeer, near The Hague and was a sports teacher in a high school. Erik is looking forward to seeing how Messy Church will develop in the Netherlands, with Messy Church, theology and sports/creativity coming together.

There are currently 130 Messy Churches in the Netherlands as part of the Kliederkerk organisation. 56% of the people who visit these Messy Churches do not otherwise go to church and are learning something about the love of God. Erik is looking forward to seeing what God will do in the Netherlands. When not at work, Erik enjoys sports (running), taking city trips in Europe, visiting friends, castles and walking.
