When we were getting ready to move to Amsterdam, we scoured the internet for evangelical, Christian churches that conducted service in English. We had to do a lot of digging, so I thought it might be useful to someone else to publish a little list:
A church plant out of Columbus, Ohio. Started in 2009, “connect” small groups that meet around the city; modern praise music in the service; Service in English or Dutch always with headset translation; some Dutch worship music; strong tie with Vineyard Utrecht
Church plant out of Hillsong London; started in 2009, lots of young people, modern praise music with praise team and instruments; lots of clapping! English sermon
Amsterdam 50 / formerly Zolder
Church started by a group from Colorado; Started around 2003; small groups that meet weekly around the city; English services; modern praise music; lots of young people
English Reform Church of Amsterdam
Large Brit/Scottish representation; Scottish minister; the church is one of the oldest in the city; organ, choir and music director lead songs from hymnals; more liturgical than the other church plants, wider demographic of attendees
Crossroads International Church
Located in Amstelveen near the CoBrA museum; English with Dutch translation; English and Dutch modern worship music; lots of clapping! lots of young families and youth. Follow them on Twitter for the latest info.
Located in Amsterdam Zuid is this relatively new church. There’s not much info on their website, but a reader of this blog contributed this listing to our post.
