the history of our building
Since the arrival of the Dutch in the ABC Islands, there was always at least one member of the West Indian Company (WIC) on Bonaire...
...and after 1792 also a few civil servants or semi-public officials. These were, barring a few exceptions, mostly protestant.
There was no spiritual care for Protestants, until the Dutch government, i.e. the State, forced a preacher to visit Bonaire. When Reverend Arend K. Meyer was appointed as preacher for Curaçao by Royal decree at the end of 1841, this was conditioned to obligatory regular visits to Bonaire. This obligation lasted until 1860.
A year and a half passed before rev. Meyer to complied with this duty and on July 2, 1843 the first “one public sermon for the protestant community” was delivered. This took place at the home of the widow Mrs. J.J. Debrot. In 1845, 86 Protestants lived on Bonaire. A small church was inaugurated on March 9, 1847.
