More than 100 people each month serve in Brussels on a STC Focus Day – now in 5 neighbourhoods around the city.
We call it a Focus Day because we want to see more clearly the needs of people who are homeless, asylum seekers, disabled, elderly, children in need, and victims of abuse. We partner with local social-profit associations serving people in need and create projects in which volunteers can get involved.
But we also want to see our neighbourhoods more clearly. Where do we see beauty in our neighbourhoods? Where do we see brokenness? Attention is action! Each project is a part of a neighbourhood group of projects. Currently we are active in the Marolles, Ste Catherine, Schaerbeek, Ixelles, and Etterbeek. More neighbourhoods to come!
Choose a neighbourhood and then a project. The day begins with an optional time of prayer. Then there is registration and a briefing for all volunteers, after which volunteers go to their projects. The day concludes with a debrief.
Please join us! Many people doing small things together can make a big difference!

Isaiah 21:11 “Watchman, what is left of the night?“
We often devalue or fail to appreciate people who are over a certain age, especially when they are diminished by illness. We fail to see them as individuals who have led active and full lives, often with great achievements or fascinating stories to tell. We could also learn much from their experience. Some, because of age, illness, loss of family members now feel lonely and disoriented and have few or no visitors. They appreciate the offer of a cup of coffee or tea, a friendly smile and encouragement, and the possibility to chat. Join us every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 14:30 to 16:00 and help to serve coffee, tea and cake in the geriatric ward of Brugmann Hospital, Site Paul Brien. For more information or to serve with us, please contact Lois or Blair.
