Licht op Zuid started in 2010 when people from the Maranathakerk had the desire that all people from Bloemhof and Hillesluis should feel welcome in the church that is located in their own neighborhood.
Many people in these neighborhoods have questions about faith and would enjoy getting together to discuss what faith means and to meet others. Therefore Licht op Zuid organises activities and introduction course about the Christian faith.
Since 2014 Martijn Weststrate is the missionary worker at Licht op Zuid. This has been made possible by the financial support of the churches and individuals whom are connected to IZB, the Maranathakerk and the Protestantse Gemeente Rotterdam-Zuid.
