How appropriate in a diocese of people on the move that we are engaged in pastoral ministry at one of Europe's largest and busiest airports - Schiphol in the Netherlands. The Revd Joop Albers is a priest of this diocese who is an airport chaplain, and member of an ecumenical team ministry there. Fr Joop's ministy is supported by Anglican sources (financial as well as volunteer time) as well as by the Old Catholic diocese of Haarlem. Anglican Airport Ministry has its own website for more information. If you are every flying through Schiphol, visit the Stiltecentrum (Meditation Centre). For an insight into this unusual and important ministry click on the following link to a youtube video.
