Wij hebben een thuis, hoera!

Wij hebben een thuis, hoera! Wij hebben een thuis, hoera! “Als de Heer het huis niet bouwt, vergeefs zwoegen de bouwers…” (Psalm 127)   Het onderstaande bericht heeft Hannes geschreven over het nieuwe KISI-Huis in Oostenrijk. Een bijzonder verhaal, dat de moeite waard is om te lezen:   Dit hebben we de afgelopen jaren telkens weer gebeden: in 2007 toen de Kapucijnen uit het klooster ...

Wie is mijn naaste

Wie is mijn naaste Afgelopen weekend hadden we weer een KISI weekend. Dit keer niet alleen met KISI Key, maar ook met KISI noord en KISI Twente. Voor het eerst in de geschiedenis had KISI Nederland (Bas en Cissy Suijkerbuijk!) een eigen musical gemaakt. We zijn er ook erg trots op. Het is voor de vastenactie waar we dit ...

Ein vielfältiges Mitarbeiterteam Mitarbeiterschulung, 13.-15.

The story of KISI in the Netherlands

The origin of KISI lies in Austria, but here you will get some more details about how KISI developed in the Netherlands.

2008

The start of KISI Netherlands! The first 23 Dutch KISIs go to Austria to learn to play the musical 'The compassionate Father'.

2010

The first KISI tour of Brabant and the CD 'No longer alone' are followed by the very first KISI Festival and the CD 'Hark The Herald Angel'.

2012

KISI Netherlands has grown into four project groups. In addition to new musicals and CDs, KISI also gets her own house in Helmond and start with a KISI KEY group.

2015

Along with KISI's from Uganda, the Dutch KISI's go on a ‘Vastenaktie’ tour in 2013. KISI now has 7 active clubs in the Netherlands and Belgium. In 2014, the KISI's go on outreach to Uganda and celebrate the KISI Festival in Austria.

Story of KISI International 

This is what we do in the Netherlands

KISI Netherlands currently offers the following activities:

Material
KISI wear

Children have been wearing their KISI shirts proudly over the past twenty years, the same goes for KISI caps, KISI sweaters and other KISI products. We love how every KISI fan can literally wear their enthusiasm and that way share it with the world.

Go to KISI wear

CDs and DVDs

All of our musicals and most of our songs are available on CD. A few of our musicals even exist on DVD. Now you can even experience KISI at home on screen or give CDs and DVDs away as presents!

CDs DVDs

Songbooks

To sing along, to join in on the piano or on the guitar, violin, ukulele or any other instrument you like. Our songbooks provide you with the sheet music and chords to all of our songs and even contain the spoken words from the musicals.

Children's program

Are you looking for new ideas and concepts for your children or youth work? We would love to share our experience and have assembled our best ideas in compact hour-long programs that you can download in our shop.

Events
Musical performances

Enthusiastic children's voices, impressive acting scenes, dynamic choreographies and a profound message – those things are what make a KISI musical so special. We perform musicals based on different biblical stories and daily life themes, such as hope or friendship. We also put on concerts only consisting of songs. This is our way of sharing the empowering message of Jesus with the world.

Puppet shows

Pauli, the adventurous little Lamb known from the KISI puppet shows, loves to be on the road – in kindergartens, schools or youth groups. Together with his family Wolliweiß he tells stories and sings about the adventures with his good shepherd.

Church service arrangements

We love spreading the gospel on stage, but what we love even more is to celebrate mass with other fellow Christians and to praise God with our songs. If you invite us, we are happy to provide you with musical arrangements during mass.

KISI-Fest

Three days of faith, fun and fellowship: every year the big KISI-Fest takes place and the program is filled with musical performances, workshops, outdoor-programs and some just as entertaining profound imputs for the whole family.

Projects
Workshops

Breathe some KISI air for a few hours: sing, dance, play and learn about Jesus – those are some of the things you will experience during our workshops. We come to parishes, schools or to other open events, to spend time with children. At the end of a workshop an arranged mass or a small concert consisting of songs, is possible.

Sing- and musical days

Learn a whole musical from scratch in only a few days? Sounds crazy, but it's possible. At KISI children train for a whole week in areas such as singing, dancing and acting for one specific KISI musical. They then have an opportunity to present their work in a final performance. Of course, we provide fun program too, which focuses on the themes featured in the musical.

Groups
KISI NOW

Do you want to be part of KISI on a regular basis? KISI NOW is a nationwide group that meets once a month, for a weekend, over the time span of half a year, to have fun, to pray and to rehearse a musical that will be performed at the end of the 6 months.

NOW groups

KISI KEY

KISI the intensive way: with KISI KEY you commit to a whole year with meetings at least once a month for one weekend. During these meetings, you train, rehearse intensively and focus on playing musicals & co. There are also opportunities for you to invest in deepening your relationship with God. KISI KEY is on tour and on the road a lot.

KEY groups

KISI CLUB

KISI CLUBs are local KISI groups that meet regularly, sing together and try to understand the content of the KISI songs in a fun way. They continue to bring new hope and joy to people in their surroundings – with small concerts in retirement homes or during church services.

Musicals

These musicals are currently played by the Dutch KISI groups:

Star role

The pinnacle of God's story of salvation with the people was the birth of the saviour – Jesus. From Elisabeth and Zechariah via Mary and Gabriel, the moments leading up to this amazing event are portrayed in a completely new and different way – from the point of view of the stars.

– also exists as a Christmas edition –

Hark The Herald Angel

A big choir of excited angels, a very important mission and very little time to practise. Add confusion to that list, because why would God want to leave Heaven to go to a place like earth as a human being? - Definitely not your typical Christmas musical.

The compassionate Father

Once again, Lilli gets to experience another biblical story. This time it's Jesus' story about the 'prodigal son'. This is a musical about God's infinite mercy and fatherly love.

Called by God – Paul – ambassador of Christ

Paul experienced so many things in his life: First he hated Christians, but then he had a radical encounter with Jesus and started telling everyone about God. He healed people, he was locked up in prison, he got shipwrecked and was saved – and Jesus was with him through all of it!

Lilli and the incredible comeback

Is it possible that the Resurrection really happened? Lilli and her friend Klara are not sure what to believe. They are swept away and travel through time into the past where they will witness an incredible comeback.
