Church attendance has declined dramatically in the Netherlands during the last thirty years. Two causes can be mentioned. First, the number of people not belonging to any religious denomination has increased considerably. Second, church members are attending church less often. In this article we will show that both membership of a religious denomination and church attendance of those members are influenced by personal and environmental factors, but not in the same way. Besides, there are important differences between Roman Catholics and Protestants with respect to this issue.
