  • Policy plan:  The national policy plan is to be found at the website of the Archdeaconry (www.anglican.nl.)
  • The local policy is:

The public worship of God, proclaiming His love in Word and Sacrament;

To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom;

To teach, baptise and nurture new believers;

To respond to human need by loving service;

To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation;

To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

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:  The objectives are to involve all associated with All Saints Maastricht to implement the policy. Our objective is summarised by our vision statement: to enable people to know, trust, love and follow Jesus so that we can serve the local, and then the wider, international community.
