United Protestant Church in Belgium (EPUB)

Partnership History

  • The church traces its history back to the Reformation which had a great influence in Belgium; however, it struggled to develop due to political forces and the counter Reformation
  • The church found the freedom to develop only after the independence of Belgium in 1830 and new churches were added due to the evangelisation by Reformed churches in Switzerland, France and the Netherlands
  • From 1962 onwards, the churches started to come together and this resulted in the formation of UPCB in 1979
  • It benefits from close ties with protestant churches in Europe, including the Church of Scotland
