Since the Reformation the Netherlands, as one of the few countries in the world, could be characterised as a mainly Calvinist state. Until the first half of the 20th century, a majority of the Dutch (about 55%) were Reformed and a large minority (35-40%) were Catholic. Because of large scale secularisation during the 20th century, these percentages dropped dramatically. Today only 15-20% of the Dutch (about 2.5 million people) is Reformed, while 25-30% is Catholic. About 45% is non-religious. Today many orthodox-reformed Christians in the Netherlands
Netherlands
cooperate with Evangelicals in organizations such as the ' Evangelische Omroep ' (Evangelical Broadcasting Company), the 'Evangelische Hogeschool' (Evangelical College), and the political party 'ChristenUnie' ( ChristianUnion
ChristianUnion
)

Dutch emigrants and missionaries brought Reformed churches to many other countries outside Europe, including Canada, United States, South Africa, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

SWITZERLAND

The Swiss Reformed Churches were started in Zurich by Huldrych Zwingli and spread within a few years to Basle (Johannes Oecolampadius ), Berne ( Berchtold Haller and Niklaus Manuel ), St. Gall (Joachim Vadian ), to cities in Southern Germany and via Alsace ( Martin Bucer
Martin Bucer
) to France. After the early death of Zwingli in 1531, his work was continued by Heinrich Bullinger
Heinrich Bullinger
, the author of the Second Helvetic Confession . The French-speaking cities Neuchatel, Geneva and Lausanne changed to the Reformation ten years later under William Farel
William Farel
and John Calvin
John Calvin
coming from France. The Zwingli and Calvin branches each had their theological distinctions, but in 1549 under the lead of Bullinger and Calvin they came to a common agreement in the Consensus Tigurinus (Zurich Consent), and 1566 in the Second Helvetic Confession. Organizationally, the Reformed Churches in Switzerland remained separate units until today (the Reformed Church of the Canton Zurich, the Reformed Church of the Canton Berne, etc.), the German part more in the Zwingli tradition, in the French part more in the Calvin tradition. Today they are members of the Federation of Swiss Protestant
Protestant
Churches . They are governed synodically and their relation to the respective canton (in Switzerland, there are no church-state regulations on country-level) ranges from independent to close collaboration, depending on historical developments. A distinctive of the Swiss Reformed churches in Zwingli tradition is their historically almost symbiotic link to the state (cantons) which is only loosening gradually in the present.

There are small conservative churches like Evangelical Reformed Church (Westminster Confession) and the Lausanne Free Church.

A total of 2.4 million Swiss are members of a Reformed church, according to the 2000 census, which corresponds with 33% of the population. The past decades show a rapid decline in this proportion, coming from 46% in 1970.

HUNGARY

The Reformed Church in Hungary, Transylvania
Transylvania
and southern Slovakia
Slovakia
is one of the largest branches of the Reformed movement. The Reformed Church is the second largest church in Hungary, it has 4 seminaries in the country (Debrecen, Papa, Budapest, Sarospatak). The Hungarian Reformed Church adopted the Heidelberg Catechism and the Second Helvetic Confession as a definition of their teaching, together the Ecumenical creeds of the Christian Church: Athanasian Creed
Athanasian Creed
, Nicene Creed
Creed
, Chalcedon, and the common creed ("Apostles\' Creed
Creed
"). The Hungarians organised the reformed church in 1557 in the Synod of Csenger and adopted the Second Helvetic Confession in 1567 in Debrecen .

The Hungarian Reformed Church maintains educational institutions, almost 80 primary schools, 28 high schools, 47 nurseries and several vocational schools and the Bethesda Hospital. There are diaconal institutions and conference centres.

In 2001, more than 1.6 million people in Hungary identified as members of the Hungarian Reformed Church. Of that number, about 600,000 are considered active members, in 1,249 congregations. The HRC has 27 presbyteries, four districts and a General Synod. In Romania, 700,000 people identified as Reformed in 800 congregations, nearly all of them ethnic Hungarians living in Transylvania.

There is the more theologically conservative Reformed Presbyterian Church of Central and Eastern Europe , which has approximately 25 congregations in Hungary, Slovakia
Slovakia
, Romania
Romania
and Ukraine
Ukraine
. Like the mainline Hungarian Reformed church, from which it split in 1997, the church adheres to the Second Helvetic Confession and the Heidelberg Catechism , but it has also adopted the Westminster Confession , and Shorter and Larger Catechisms.

The Reformed Presbyterian
Presbyterian
Church of Central and Eastern Europe maintains the Károlyi Gáspár Institute of Theology and Missions , located in Miskolc , Hungary.

Slovakia
was part of the Reformed Church in Hungary until the end of World War I. In 1993 a Theological Seminary was opened in Komárno . Cathechial schools are in Kosice and Komarno. In Slovakia
Slovakia
, 110,000 Calvinists were recorded.

ROMANIA

The Reformed Church in Romania
Romania
consist of 2 districtes in Romania. These districtes are the :

* Transylvanian Reformed Church District * Királyhágómellék Reformed Church District

In Transylvania
Transylvania
the Reformed faith took root in the 16th century. In 1564 a Synod was held in Nagyenyed when the Reformed and Lutheran church separated. This date is the founding date of the Transylvanian Reformed Church. Partium was an adjected part of Transylvania
Transylvania
it was a separated geographical area, the Hungarian-transylvanian princes ruled this part too. In this land was founded the Kiralyhagomellek Reformed District. Transylvania
Transylvania
was part of Hungary till 1920. The Confessions of these churches are the Apostles Creed , the Heidelberg Catechism . In the church buildings especially in smaller villages the men and women sitting separated and the childrend and those who were not yet married were sitting in the church choir or gallery. The believers are predominantly (95%) Hungarian so the worship language is also Hungarian. It has 800 congregations and 700,000 members. The Romanian Hungarian are very religious the religion is community binding.

GERMANY

The German Reformed Church (Reformierte Kirche) forms, together with German Lutheran
Lutheran
and united Protestant
Protestant
churches, the umbrella named Evangelical Church in Germany (German: Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland) or EKD. The member churches of EKD were formerly the Protestant
Protestant
state churches in German states before the separation of religion and state in 1919. EKD represents, alongside Catholicism, Germany's "mainstream" religious bodies.

The German Reformed Church, unusually, does not trace its origins back to Zwingli or Calvin, but rather to Philipp Melanchthon , Luther's best friend and closest ally. After Melanchthon's death in 1560, extremist Lutherans (from whom Luther had previously distanced himself) accused Melanchthon's successors in the " Philippist " cause of Crypto- Calvinism
Calvinism
and mercilessly persecuted and sometimes killed them in several states, especially Saxony
Saxony
. Other states, such as Hesse (-Cassel), remained openly Philippist and Reformed. Only during the time of Calvin (1509–1564) himself did genuinely Calvinist influences enter the German Reformed faith; even today, it remains more Philippist than Calvinist.

In the German Empire (1871–1918) some states were Lutheran, some Reformed. King Frederick William III of Prussia
Frederick William III of Prussia
united both major Protestant
Protestant
confessions in his domains into the Prussian Union of churches in 1817, allowing congregations to maintain Lutheran
Lutheran
or Reformed confession, or declare their union, also in Bremen (1877), Hesse-Cassel (1817), and Hesse-Darmstadt (1832) Reformed and Lutherans form a union merely in administration. Some states saw unions of Reformed and Lutherans to a united confession, such as Anhalt (1820 in Anhalt-Bernburg
Anhalt-Bernburg
, 1827 in Anhalt-Dessau
Anhalt-Dessau
, and 1880 in Anhalt-Köthen ), Baden (1821), Nassau (1817) and Bavarian Palatinate (1848), while Lutherans in other states ( Bavaria
Bavaria
proper, Hamburg
Hamburg
, Hanover , Lübeck , the Mecklenburgs , Oldenburg , Saxon Duchies , Saxony
Saxony
, Schaumburg-Lippe
Schaumburg-Lippe
, Schleswig-Holstein
Schleswig-Holstein
, and Württemberg ) did not followed suit.

The German Reformed Church's finest hour arguably occurred during the Third Reich (1933–1945): although by far not all Reformed clergy and their flocks opposed the Nazis, the Reformed Church dominated the Confessing Church
Confessing Church
resistance against Hitler — partially, it has been said, because Reformed congregations had fewer hierarchy- and state-centered perspectives than the Lutherans.

As of 2009 German Protestants come in four different guises, all under one national umbrella, but differentiated by region ( Landeskirche , usually regions smaller than the states ):

* Lutheran * Reformed, namely Evangelical Reformed Church in Bavaria
Bavaria
and Northwestern Germany (comprising Reformed congregations in all areas, where Lutherans and Reformed did not unite, but Lippe), and Church of Lippe * Administration-United - in these churches, each parish is either Lutheran, Reformed or united Protestant, and so is the congregation and the Pastor, but all share the same administration * Consensus-United - there is no difference even at the parish level

In Germany As of 2009 roughly 25 million Germans (less than one-third of the entire population, slightly more than half of German Christians) are Protestant. Of these, less than 2 million are Reformed. The main coordinating body for Reformed churches in Germany is the Reformed Alliance in Germany.

Smaller, separate denominations include the Evangelical Old-Reformed Church in Lower Saxony
Saxony
, the Union of Evangelical Reformed Churches in Germany , and the episcopally governed Free Reformed Churches of Germany .

FRANCE

In France, the Reformed Protestants were called Huguenots . The Reformed Church of France survived under persecution from 1559 until the Edict of Nantes
Edict of Nantes
(1598), the effect of which was to establish regions in which Protestants could live unmolested. These areas became centers of political resistance under which the Reformed church was protected until 1628, when La Rochelle
La Rochelle
, the Protestant
Protestant
center of resistance to Louis XIII , was overrun by a French army blockade. After the Protestant
Protestant
resistance failed, the Reformed Church of France reorganized, and was guaranteed toleration under the Edict of Nantes until the final revocation of toleration in 1685 (Edict of Fontainebleau ). The periods of persecution scattered French Reformed refugees to England, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands
Netherlands
, Africa (especially South Africa) and America . Louis XVI granted an edict of toleration . Freedom of religion came with the French Revolution. Napoleon organized state controlled French Reformed church with the Organic Articles in 1802. A free (meaning, not state controlled) synod of the Reformed Church emerged in 1848 and survives in small numbers to the present time. The French refugees established French Reformed churches in the Latin countries and in America.

The first Reformed churches in France produced the Gallic Confession and French Reformed confession of faith, which served as models for the Belgic Confession of Faith (1563).

Today, about 300,000 people are members of the Reformed Church of France (now United Protestant
Protestant
Church of France ). There is also the smaller Protestant
Protestant
Reformed Church of Alsace and Lorraine and the more conservative National Union of Independent Reformed Evangelical Churches of France .
