African Christians in Secular Amsterdam

Stefan Paas notes the significant presence of African Christians on the rather low-key Amsterdam church scene: “In Amsterdam perhaps three percent of the population regularly go to church, half of which consists of import Christians from Africa and a large part of the other half consists of import Christians from the Bible belt.” Consequently an important question for him is: “Can we learn something from non-Western Christians who are currently discovering Europe as a mission field.”[1]
