Our Story

Proclaiming Jesus as Lord in Amsterdam for over 400 years

For over 400 years, we have served at the heart of Amsterdam; we are an English-speaking spiritual home for those of all nations, offering a generous welcome and proclaiming Jesus as Lord.

Christ Church Amsterdam continues to build on its rich history as it continues to serve the city of Amsterdam.

For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.

Rev. Canon Alan Strange

Chaplain
Alan turned to follow Christ at 18, was ordained and served in Brussels for 8 years before leaving to be a vicar in Norwich, England for 20 years. Now, he has returned “home”, to the continent. Heaven would be skiing with Jesus in the morning, lying on a beach with his wife in the afternoon, and having a BBQ with all his friends as the sun goes down.
