The Restored Reformed Church (Dutch: Hersteld Hervormde Kerk, abbreviated HHK) is a Reformed Christian denomination in the Netherlands. It was founded on May 1, 2004, by a minority of the Reformed Bond inside the Dutch Reformed Church (Nederlandse Hervormde Kerk) who opposed that church's merger with two other Protestant churches into the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (Protestantse Kerk in Nederland). In 2008, the Church had a membership of 57,500 in 117 congregations. It conducts missionary work in Malawi.

- ↑ 2.0 2.1 September 17, 2007 Rev. Ruigrok, clerk of the Restored Reformed Church, in the Kerkblad voor het Noorden reports membership between 55.000 and 60.000. April 17, 2008 the church office of the HHK corroborates this number, though procedures for determining exact numbers are as yet not established. Prior to these reports, estimates dated from 2004 at the time these continuing congregations withdrew from following the rest into the PKN. The earlier estimate of 70,000 now appears to be unrealistic.
