About us

WHO WE ARE

C3 Amsterdam and Almere are part of C3 Church Global, an international movement of churches: Christ-centred, Spirit-powered and connect-driven. We want people to know Jesus in a fresh, personal way; to have a real-time connection with God. We are a hospitable people – generous and fun and full of life – and we are committed to healthy and growing churches around the world. As an international family, our members can walk into any of our C3 Churches and know they’re home.

WHERE WE’VE COME FROM

With a passion for Jesus and desire to see this world won for Christ, Phil and Chris Pringle came to Sydney in 1980 to start a church. With just 12 people attending an Easter service, Christian Centre Northside (and the C3 Church movement as we now know it) was begun. This church grew to over 400 members in 4 years and soon began planting within Sydney and beyond.

WHERE WE ARE GOING

With over 500 churches in 64 countries, we have a dream of seeing 1 million worshippers in C3 congregations every weekend around the globe. The C3 of the future will be even more vibrant, diverse and energetic than it is now. As we look to the future, we’re excited about all that God is doing and all that he will do.

RANDSTAD-NOORD

HEART FOR OUR REGION

As part of C3 Church Global we too are committed planting new churches, campuses and locations. In the past we have planted churches in Arnhem, Den Haag en London and we are strongly committed to planting churches in the future. Our vision for our region Randstad-Noord is to have one church in multiple locations.

We currently have a location in Amsterdam and one in Almere. Together we are one church, yet each location has its own flavor. In the future we hope to expand to other cities in the region. Increasing our services and locations will increase the opportunity to reach people for Christ.
