Anglican Church Zwolle

Welcome to Anglican Church Zwolle. 

We are a small but vibrant community of English-speaking Christians where everybody counts. We have been meeting in Zwolle for 60 years! We are a small, welcoming community of Christians brought together by a shared love of Jesus, a desire to worship and grow in Christ, and for friendly fellowship and mutual support and encouragement.

Our church is a part of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Holy Trinity Utrecht in the Diocese in Europe, a part of the Province of Canterbury in The Church of England, and our services are in English. Our members come from around the world. Some have been born and raised in the Netherlands and have found a spiritual home at the Anglican Church in Zwolle. Some are cradle Anglicans, many come from other church backgrounds. All are welcome.

If you live in the region of Zwolle and are seeking a spiritual home and Christian fellowship please join us on the 1st or 3rd Sunday of the month at 4pm and introduce yourself after service when we have a time for refreshments and conversation.

On October 1 we will celebrate our yearly Harvest Festival. In the service, which starts at 16:00 in the Lutherse Kerk (Koestraat 4), we will reflect on how we have been blessed in the past year. Afterwards we will share a potluck meal together. To share with even more people there will also be a collection for the Foodbank. All are welcome!

Sharing the Harvest in service and meal


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.
