Amstel Church

The Amstel Church is a wooden church building in Amsterdam located on the Amstelveld. It dates from 1670 and would be a temporary "wooden barn preach" later followed by a stone church, but that has never happened.
Currently, the church owned by "Urban restoration" Amsterdam, which also rents its office space and socio-cultural activities and for receptions and wedding.
