Want to grow in a more specific area of your life like: the basics of the Christian faith, finding freedom, marriage, parenting or finances?

Within our Connect Group system we offer several courses that will help you further with this. You can get more information about our courses, at www.thousandhills.nl/groups.


Many people are asking themselves the questions: Why am I here? What is the point of my life? Is there not more to life? Is there a God?

You may have attended a church for most of your life but you may have never really understood what Christianity is all about.

If this is how you are thinking, we can offer you help and a direction for your life by inviting you to follow the Alpha Course.

The Alpha Introduction meeting will be held in the Hilversum campus on Sunday 24 February 2019 at 13.30, with a snack lunch. You can meet people who attended last time and learn from their experiences in Alpha. The first evening will be on Tuesday 26 February in the church and the course continues for 10 sessions until Tuesday 30 April. Alpha is held in both English and Dutch.

Register for the next Alpha Course starting September 30, 2018

The Alpha Course allows you to be introduced to the basis of the Christian faith in an informal and relaxed way, together with a small group of about 8-10 others. The course is informative, fun-filled and starts every evening with a meal. It is a dynamic course that can be life-changing. The Alpha Course has been followed by over 30 million people world-wide in 169 countries and explores the meaning of life and some of the basic truths of the Christian faith such as “Who is Jesus?”, “Why should I read the Bible?” and “Does God heal today?”. It is scripturally-based and has the backing of all Christian denominations. It is for those searching for the meaning of life, newcomers to the church and those wanting to explore their faith. Whether you attend Thousand Hills or not, you are welcome at the Alpha Course.

Do you want to discover how you and your partner can grow old together? Whether you just started dating or have already picked a wedding date, why not take some time to reflect on your relationship, your dreams, hopes and expectations?

The Pre-Marriage Course helps you to lay a good foundation for your relationship. In five evenings you and your partner will discuss privately what is really important in your relationship.

The next Pre-marriage course will be held in February 2019, as required.


Every marriage needs a check-up every now and again. Life is busy, life is complicated, and the marriage relationship easily gets snowed under all that is going on in our lives.

Participating in the Marriage Course will help you and your spouse to connect on a deeper level, rekindle the fire and give you practical tips to stay strong over the course of the years to come.

The next Marriage course will be held in February 2019.


The Parenting Course allows you to pick up tools and ideas for a healthy and God-honouring upbringing of your children and teenagers.

During the course we deal with questions like:
-How can my children learn to know God's love?
-How can I set boundaries for my teenagers?
-How can I help develop their emotional health?
-How can I help them to make good choices?


The Freedom in Christ course will allow you to understand the truth of who you are in Christ, resolve any personal and spiritual strongholds from the past and move on towards Christian maturity.

In this way you can become alive and free in Christ through genuine repentance, forgiveness and faith in God. This allows you to grow and become a fruitful disciple who can make a real impact in our church and community.

Freedom in Christ course runs in both English and in Dutch in the homes of the leaders. The English course will start on Sunday 3 March 2019 and continues for 10 Sunday evenings. The Dutch group will start on Wednesday 20 February and continues for 13 Tuesday evenings.

Register for the next Freedom in Christ course starting in ENG on September 2nd and the NL starts on September 9th. The Steps day will take place on October 27
