• Christ Church Heiloo is…

    Christian We are a bible believing church who accept the fundamentals of the Christian faith as confessed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We are seeking to live out the reality of following Jesus Christ as a community and in our families week by week.

    International We are an international and English-speaking church with congregation members living throughout North-Holland. We rejoice in the variety of nationalities and church backgrounds represented.

    Anglican We are an Anglican chaplaincy in the region of Alkmaar and one of the Anglican Churches in the Netherlands www.anglican.nl and part of the Anglican Diocese in Europe www.europe.anglican.org. We welcome all Christians to our fellowship and worship. We are supported by the Intercontinental Church Society www.ics-uk.org, an evangelical mission society of the Church of England.

    Active and Friendly If you are a Christian looking for a church to become part of, or someone who is interested in asking questions about the reality of Jesus Christ, you would be very welcome to join us at our regular 17:00 Sunday service. Through the year we run groups for people who want to ask questions about God and the truth of Christianity, courses for spiritual growth, prayer meetings and a Friday night youth group.

  • Christ Church Heiloo’s Purpose & Mission

    During 2014 the leadership team and ministry leaders developed new purpose and mission aims for Christ Church Heiloo. In March 2016 the leadership team fine-tuned them and added a sixth aim: Serve. These crystallize what we believe our core callings are as a community. The updated aims were presented at the annual meeting on 13th March 2016 and can be summed up in six words, Worship – Invite – Care – Learn – Serve – Equip.

    Christ Church Heiloo’s Purpose and Mission is to
    Worship and glorify God when we meet and in our daily lives
    Invite and help friends, family, neighbours and colleagues to discover a living faith in Jesus Christ
    Care for one another and the local international community
    Learn to become disciples of Jesus Christ by knowing and obeying God’s Word, The Bible
    Serve in the growth of God’s kingdom
    Equip disciples of Jesus Christ to worship, invite, care, learn and serve

    Which of the six do you most identify with? Email one of the churchwardens to let them know.

    Reporting Suspected Abuse

    Everyone has a responsibility to be vigilant in spotting incidents of abuse. If you become aware of abuse please contact the safeguarding coordinator as soon as you can (see below for details). You can also talk to your Chaplain or one of the Church Wardens.

    If you would prefer, you can call the diocesan confidential telephone line +44 (0) 207 898 1163 and leave a message as to your concerns. The Diocesan Safeguarding Team will get back to you as soon as possible. A diocesan officer will then ensure that the concerns are properly investigated and will let you know what the outcome is. In addition it is of course your right and duty as a citizen to inform the local law enforcement agencies where you believe a criminal offense has been committed.
