Kerk In Actie (KIA)
Kerk in Actie is the programme for missionary and diaconal work of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands and of 10 smaller churches and ecumenical organisations. We want to emphasize that the local church-communities are actively participating in missionary and diaconal work. Kerk in Actie facilitates relations between local congregations in the Netherlands and churches and organisations abroad regarding the proclamation of the Gospel and promotion of justice. Kerk in Actie co-operates with almost thousand partner churches and organisations in more than 60 countries of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe.
- financial support for the work of these partner organisations
- sharing personnel
- expressing sympathy through intercessory prayers, spreading information and mutual visits
- lobby and advocacy
- Kerk in Actie does not implement its own projects but always works through local partners.
