(Protestantse Kerk in Nederland (PKN) is an organisation created on 1 May 2004 from the merger of the Dutch Reformed Church (Nederlandse Hervormde Kerk, NHK), the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands (Gereformeerde Kerken in Nederland, GKN) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Kingdom of the Netherlands (Evangelisch-Lutherse Kerk in het Koninkrijk der Nederlanden). Since 1961 the churches have been going through an organizational process to this end. Some parishes and members in the Dutch Reformed Church do not agree with the merger and have separated. They have organized in the "Restored Reformed Church", "Hersteld Hervormde Kerk" (HHK))
