A little bit of history: The Towercock
29 March 2022

This cock has served as the tower cock on our church tower at a height of 52 metres for 65 years. It will be replaced by a new tower cock in 2021. The beautiful pedestal was made by the students of MBO TRACK workshop of MBO Amersfoort Entree-opleidingen. The cock is traditionally an attribute of the apostle Peter as a reference to the denial of Jesus and his repentance.

The old cockerel now has a place in our church hall.
