About: Augustana Church to Augustanahof: Urban neighbourhoods become more diverse, and membership of traditional churches is declining. Augustanahof in Amsterdam presents an innovative approach. An urban church building was transformed to house a living community committed of people which is open to the neighbourhood. The European process, ‘Seeking Conviviality’ supports this new approach to working with diversity based on the concept of a diaconal church which is open to the diversity of the local place.
