NETHERLANDS – Groningse Klein Wetsinge church becomes village hall

The Reformed Church in Groningen Klein Wetsinge will be re-newed as a multi-purpose space. Churchgoers are no longer there, so the Local Committee on Small Wetsinge’s decied to extend the uses for the space. A lookout for tourists, a room for small events, and the opportunity for local businesses to promote local church will regenerate the building. The church is run by the Foundation for Historic Groninger Churches (Groninger kerken), which already owns over 70 churches and is experienced in safekeeping historic churches in the countryside of Groningen.

The renovation, which should be ready in June will cost 250,000 euros.
