Churches merge

By on February 1, 2004

Three Protestant denominations in the Netherlands – two Reformed and one Lutheran – will merge this year to form the country’s biggest Protestant church. The recent decision by the synods of the three denominations follows unity negotiations talks going back 40 years and will make the church the second largest after the five-million strong Roman Catholic church.

The Protestant Church in the Netherlands will officially come into being on May 1.
