Church is beautiful, the English service was lovely. An organist, a cellist and a single awesome vocalist produce accompanies one of the best church experience I've had. Highly recommended.

In Amsterdam is such a big variety of churches. This one on the Singel is often closed when I pass by. But this time, we were lucky! The architecture is beautiful inside. Next time I’ll check the schedules on their website.
