Actually a pretty old church, and has had an English service dating back to the 1600s and the Dutch uprising against Phillip of Spain. Very welcoming, and faithful teaching. Highly recommended. They will even share some of the history with you.

One of the interesting things you can see at Begijnhof is the English Reformed Church (Engelse Kerk) located across from the Begijnhof Chapel. Church service schedule can be found on the church website, for those interested in attending an English language service. I'm not sure...More

It's located just next to Begijnhof, a beautiful garden in the busy Amsterdam down town. The lady at the entrance is very helpful by introducing the history of the church. It's worth going there to enjoy some peace in mind when you're walking in A'dam.

Our family finally got there for the Easter Monday service. Even though the service was in Dutch, it was spectacular to have been within the walls of the church listening and participating in the mass. Inside is amazing - so much detail. Absolutely beautiful.

We visited here on a Sunday on a walking tour to see the pulpit. The panels were designed by the artist Mondriaan. The service had finished but the atmosphere was lively and it looked as if the church was well attended

Unfortunatelly, it was closed, so we saw it only from the courtyard. But the whole place is very nice. It worth to visit.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
