  • Lovely church that meets in the Dutch Embassy. My wife and I were given a very warm welcome. The teaching was biblical and helpful.
  • I have a terrible experience with the people in this church. Their deacon Biddle McClooney took my 1000USD yesterday (Sunday) with the understanding that he would purchase an airticket to deliver a compensation claim to me. Hours after getting my money, he changed his mind and asked me for more money when he had earlier agreed to top up and pay for the airticket. When I confronted him, he threatened to cancel the compensation claim and even reported me to the Customs Barrister and the President. I do not think that a man without integrity and cannot fulfil his word and has no clean hands when it comes to money should be allowed to be a deacon. Right now he has no reason to hold on to my money but he refuses to return it to me. He is also abusing his position of authority in the Customs and Army to oppress me knowing that I am helpless and have no one to assist me. I do not recommend anyone to to to this church with such questionable people in leadership. Moreover the church is not accountable to anyone.
  • Always the church I go to whenever I'm in Istanbul on a Sunday. Loved the Gospel centred teachings and the community they have.
  • Amazing fellowship.
  • Worship services in the heart of Istanbul.
