Anglican Church Zwolle

Welcome to Anglican Church Zwolle, a longstanding community of English-speaking Christians in Zwolle, with a history dating back 60 years. We are a small, close-knit congregation bound by our shared faith in Jesus, a commitment to worship, spiritual growth, and a strong sense of community.

Our church is a part of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Holy Trinity Utrecht, within the Diocese in Europe, and the Province of Canterbury in The Church of England. We hold our services in English, and our members come from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, including both native Dutch and international members.

If you're in the Zwolle region and looking for a Christian community, join us on the 1st or 3rd Sunday of the month at 4 pm. Stick around after the service for refreshments and a chance to get to know us better.

Safeguarding

The protection from harm of children and adults who may be vulnerable is of paramount importance to us. As a chaplaincy within the Diocese of Europe, Holy Trinity Utrecht Chaplaincy complies fully with the requirements of the Diocese’s Safeguarding Policy.

We will not tolerate the abuse of children or adults in any form.

Specifically, within our Chaplaincy we are committed to:

The care, nurture, and respectful pastoral ministry of all children, young persons and adults.
The safeguarding and protection of all children, young persons and adults who may be vulnerable.
The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where there is a culture of ‘informed vigilance’ as to the dangers of abuse.
The careful selection and training of all those with any safeguarding responsibility within the Church, including the use of available criminal records disclosures and relevant vetting and barring schemes.
Preventing abuse or the likelihood of abuse by encouraging and adopting a pro-active stance to safeguarding; responding to the slightest concern whether by rumour, speculation or from an anonymous source – every safeguarding concern will be taken seriously.
Ensuring that any concern about safeguarding must be passed onto someone in the Diocesan Safeguarding Team as there are no legal barriers to sharing such concerns.
Responding without delay to every complaint made which suggests that a child, young person or adult may have been harmed – co-operating with the local police, relevant local agencies and any other relevant body (e.g. other faith groups) in any investigation.
Seeking to work with anyone who has suffered abuse, developing with them an appropriate ministry of informed pastoral care.
Seeking to challenge any abuse of power, especially by anyone in a position of trust.
Seeking to offer pastoral care and support, including supervision and referral to the proper authorities, to any member of our church community known to have offended against a child, young person or vulnerable adult.
