About us

The 'Stichting Beheer en Exploitatie Oude of Pelgrimvaderskerk' (Management and Exploitation Foundation) is responsible for the proper management and operation of the church building. The building itself is owned by the Stichting Volkskracht Historische Monumenten, Rotterdam. The rental income benefits the maintenance and upkeep of the church building. The Board of the Foundation is unpaid.

Two paid part-time professionals work for 'Stichting Beheer en Exploitatie'. In addition, many volunteers help to preserve the church building as a social and cultural center for the Rotterdam society as heritage. The Foundation is registered with the Chamber of Commerce:

  • Chamber of Commerce number: 643825830000
  • IBAN NL 52 RAB0 0307 991385 in the name of Stichting Beheer & Exploitatie Oude of Peglrimvaderskerk, Rotterdam

The Management and Exploitation Foundation operates the church building in accordance with its nature and dignity. Over the centuries, the Pilgrim Fathers Church is still used by the Reformed Municipality of Delfshaven, with regular Sunday services.
