Up until 2006, the Koepelkerk served as the seat of the Dutch Reformed Church in Sappemeer. Together with the former State Higher Vocational School (HBS) and the ‘Torentje’ or little tower, it forms the town’s Museological Centre: Exceptional buildings with facilities to accommodate a range of recreational activities, which are available for the community’s use.
The Koepelkerk offers one countless options including the following: recreational activities, marriage, remembrance ceremonies, meditation, presentations, conversation, listening, learning, music, song, ...
The Koepelkerk (1655) occupies an exceptional historical position in that it was one of the first structures to witness the birth of the town of Sappemeer. Given its considerable age alone, the Koepelkerk is of great emotional value to many people, and has been for numerous generations.
The Koepelkerk Sappemeer Foundation is responsible for the operation of this exceptional historical building.
We would nevertheless be pleased to welcome you, as we firmly believe that historical buildings should not only be conserved, but also used.
You are welcome on both counts, therefore!
