Welcome to House of Compassion

House of Compassion is a thematic church about compassion and the fight for justice. Building further on the commitment of the Brussels Beguinage community of the past decades, we strive together with our partners for more humanity, a hopeful society and a dignified life for all people, this based on the inspiration of Jesus of Nazareth and the Golden Rule.

Everyone is welcome for a meeting, celebration, art and silence.
