It is more blessed to give than to receive

Our congregation relies on the support of worshippers, members and friends to maintain our ministries and buildings.

We aim to be financially self-supporting both in our own work and in order to give to others in mission. The funding of our worship, ministry and outreach, along with the ongoing maintenance of our buildings, the church, our hall and the manse (where the minister lives) is our responsibility.

Our lovely 600 year old church building is in excellent condition after restorations in the 1970s and more recently in 2005/6, but we also have a professionally advised medium term maintenance plan which involves work to be done every year. The maintenance fund of the congregation, operated by the Friends of the English Reformed Church, is described elsewhere on this site.

The annual account of the congregation are available to members, which are audited every year and supervised by the Presbytery of Europe.

Maintenance Fund

The Stichting Friends of the English Reformed Church

In 1970 it was decided to create a foundation of Friends of the English Reformed Church in Amsterdam within the congregation. The aim of the foundation is to support the continuing work of the Church and congregation, and it now cares for the maintenance fund of the congregation.

The funds of the Association Friends are used in the ongoing work to keep our building in good condition, and practical support in the form of gifts and donations is always appreciated.

For more information please  contact  our treasurer via our Contact form selecting the department ‘Treasury’.
