The Reformed Churches (Liberated) in the Netherlands decided in 1963 to start mission work in Curitiba, Paraná, among Dutch immigrants who had moved to the area since 1950. Though the Dutch colony Monte Alegre was dissolved in 1971, the evangelistic work continued in Curitiba among Brazilians. A difficult time arose in the ’80s when many members left the church. The center of activities moved at that time from Curitiba to Colombo, an independent municipality in the metropolitan area of Curitiba. A church was registered there in 1995. Mission work is also expanding in other places. The Reformed Church in Colombo has close contacts with the Reformed Church of Brasolandia at Unaí, Minas Gerais, where some of the old immigrants of Monte Alegre have established themselves (no. 21), with the Reformed Churches of Brazil (no. 22), and with the Presbyterian Church of Brazil (no. 1).

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
Whoever has information about this church may contact us. We will be happy to update our information.
