Seekers Café and Prayer at the Háteigs-church

Thursdays at 15:00

Seekers Café & Prayer is a community for chatting and prayer that is especially designed for asylum seekers in Iceland. From 15:00 to 16:30 is open café time when participants can chat about non-religious matters or some asylum ceses. From 16:30 to 17:00, we move to the church and have time for prayers. Anyone who doesn’t join the Christian prayer can skip it.

The name of “Seekers” is coming from the idea that we all must be looking for something in our own lives on earth as well as actual asylum seekers as refugees.

Seekers Café and Prayer at the Háteigs-church is held on Thursdays 15:00. Rev. Ása Laufey Sæmundsdóttir serves together with Toshiki Toma, pastor for immigrants.

* The meeting will be re-started from August 2020.
