*Links:

The church Website has on the home page a large fuzzy photo of the building; unfortunately, it's from the back side, so the tower is not visible.  Elsewhere on the Website, two other photos of the building do include the tower, but it's obscured by trees.  There is an excellent page about the bells, and the service bell is pictured on the History page.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.

*Status:

   This page was built on 26-Feb-00 (not from the database) and last revised on 16-Sep-18.
The city name is shown in mixed case at the top of this page and in all referring indexes because this site, having only 6 bells, does not have an entry in the database which supports all other site data pages.  If the two empty bell pits are ever filled to make a ring of 8, then a standard database entry will be constructed using the information above, and all referring indexes will be revised appropriately.
