Many people, whether or not they are regular churchgoers, wish to place the joy of marriage in a wider, God-centred context. We are always delighted when people approach us about a church wedding.

Times of loss often give rise to feelings of shock and confusion, as well as sadness and grief. Bereavements for people living overseas can be particularly complex.
The Chaplain at The Hague has years of experience of working with bereaved people in very many different circumstances. We are happy assist with funerals that take place either here, or at another church.
