Zendtijd voor Kerken (abbr. ZvK: English: Airtime for Churches) was a special broadcaster on the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system, which was allowed to broadcast on radio and television because of their religious background. Article 2.42 of the Dutch media law (the Mediawet) made room for faith-based radio and television broadcasters who do not have to have any members, unlike regular public broadcasters (several of which are also faith-based).

On 1 January 2016, ZvK closed down and its programming is now produced by EO.[1]

They made programming for various church communities namely:

IKON took care of part of the technical facilities of ZvK, until the closure of both broadcasters.
