Deventer is a city in the Salland region of the Dutch province of Overijssel. Deventer was probably founded around 768 by the English missionary Lebuinus, who built a wooden church on the east bank of the river IJssel. Since then the christian Church has a prominent place in this beautiful city.
Churches in Deventer are glad to recieve English speaking visitors. Although church activities are generally in Dutch, often English translation is provided, for example in the 3GK church.
