Holy Trinity Chaplaincy is a welcoming community of Christians brought together by a shared love of Jesus with lively worship, Christian discipleship, friendly fellowship, and a desire to bring the love of God to others.

The Chaplaincy may have paid staff and other workers, and also may compensate volunteer workers for their activities to the maximum allowable annual amount.

  1. Objectives

Our objective is to worship God, to administer the Sacraments, and to proclaim the Gospel, the Good News, to the world both by word and by actions of loving kindness both as individuals within the church and in supporting charitable works as a church locally and around the world.  Our ministry includes the development of disciples of Jesus Christ through teaching and prayer  and the pastoral care of those in special need in our congregations.   Our church websites (see 4 above) identify in greater detail the various activities that support our objectives.

Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Utrecht
Church Council

The following Resolution was passed by Council by agreement on 26 June 2020:

Postponement of the Annual General Meeting

Proposal

Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Utrecht Annual Chaplaincy Church Meeting is hereby postponed to a date, still to be determined, but no later than 30th October 2020.

Prop: SU; Sec: KdB

In accordance with Church Representation Rules, the proposal was agreed.

– De reden voor dit uitstel is gelegen in de omstandigheid dat de beperkingen, voortkomend uit de situatie rond covid19/coronavirus het houden van de tot vaststelling van de jaarrekening noodzakelijke jaarvergadering binnen zes maanden na het einde van het boekjaar 2019 onmogelijk maken. –

The Annual Chaplaincy Church Meeting took place on 25th October 2020.
