Notes The asst. Minister ('98) writes to Airborne: "We are right in the centre of the city, and have just celebrated our 300th anniversary.  A lively Christian fellowship on the edge of the red light district, seeking to reach out into such areas. We have 45 different nationalities, and as many denominations.  International.  But also a place for the traditional (1662 HC once a month).

Also a good friend writes: "We attended a very warm and welcoming English Speaking Church in Amsterdam. It is International Anglican, with good teaching and worship and people from all over. Familar songs & spirit."

Due to renovations, the church service are not held at the Groenburgwal address until about Aug/Sept 2000. Now celebrating in the 'Bethanienklooster' in the 'Barndesteeg'
