- Salaries policy
The church shall have such stipendiary clergy and other ministers as is agreed between the Bishop and the church council. Their stipends shall be determined in accordance with or on the basis of stipulations made by, on behalf or with the concurrence of the Bishop. Neither stipendiary or salaried staff, nor volunteer officers or council members, will receive any remuneration or other financial compensation, however named, in respect of their work in governing the church; and such activities shall not be deemed to establish any claim to tax exemption or tax-exempt payments. Exceptional expenses may be compensated financially only to the maximum nominal amount.
- Policy plan
The national policy plan is to be found at the website of the Archdeaconry www.anglican.nl. The local policy is summarised here: Main policy for 2020 is to proceed with the intensifying of the work of our Church, with the contribution of all, for creating a thriving Church community again in which more and more people feel at home and feel supported in their religious life. With the current Covid pandemic we are working hard to support all members of our church community and keep our place of worship safe.
Where possible we contribute to joint activities within the Diocese of Europe of the Anglican Church.
Our financial situation is improving thorough careful attention. Costs are kept as low as possible. This means that, although the Chaplaincy may have paid staff and other workers, and may also compensate volunteer workers for their activities to the maximum allowable annual amount, we do not expect any other payment of fees or the like except for visiting clergy and organist.
The Anglican Church Haarlem offers a place of worship for the English-speaking community in and around the Haarlem area and visitors from home and abroad to meditate, pray and worship, privately and together. We support people in their understanding and approach to life and faith. We are called to sharing the joy of God’s unconditional love in faith and action. We commit ourselves to contributing to a world where love, reconciliation, tolerance, equality and peace can prevail. We are an open, welcoming church, which exists for the community as a whole and where everyone is valued and respected. Charitable activities also include work among asylum seekers, contributions to the local food bank, and support to various other charitable and relief funds, mainly abroad.
Note: These objectives are being reviewed at present by the Church Council. Any comments are welcome!
- Activities report
As in other years, the focus of activities in 2019 was on our regular services, held every Sunday, and monthly Compline and Healing services. There were special services such as the Nine Lessons and Carols and combined services with the Old Catholic Church, a Lent and Advent course with discussion, as well as other activities such as social events and concerts by our excellent choir. Apart from these activities the main and most important issue was the maintenance of church membership and momentum during the current interregnum, which will end with the appointment of a new chaplain.
