Christ Church ANBI Compliance

The Chaplaincy of Christ Church Amsterdam

We are four English-speaking International Anglican congregations consisting of people from all over the world and where all generations feel at home. We have worshipped Jesus in Amsterdam for over 300 years and today we seek to combine the strengths of the historic Anglican Communion with the vibrancy of contemporary worship. Our vision is to make disciples of Christ from all nations in Amsterdam and North Holland. We want to help each other to grow healthy relationships with God, one another and our neighbours as we live together in greater Amsterdam and North Holland.
