The British based Evangelical Alliance had been founded in 1849 to advance evangelical protestant ideas amongst churches and individuals from around the world. Its fifth annual conference met at Amsterdam in the Netherlands and opened on this date with an address from Reverend Professor J.J. van Oosterzee of the University of Utrecht.  The conference lasted a week and closed on August 27, 1867. The Alliance remains active to this day, with 3,500 churches as members.  (By John Osborne)
