Description of Hervormde Kerk

Hervormde Kerk is a 17th century Reform church in a town of Heemskerk. The Restored Reformed Church is an experimentally reformed Dutch denomination, which largely consists of members of the Reformed Church that, because of conscientious objections, wanted to stay outside the merger with the Reformed Churches and the Evangelical Lutheran Church, who together joined the Protestant Church on 1 May 2004. in the Netherlands (PKN). The HHK mainly consists of municipalities that were previously included in the orthodox reformed directions of the Reformed League and Het Gekrookte Riet. The number of members amounted to 58,952 people as of 1 January 2016. In 2015, the number of members decreased for the first time after years of growth, but in 2016 and 2017 there was a slight increase again.
