A commemorative inscription next to the entry remembers September 20, 1924, when the Royal Family member Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, was with Juliana Louisa Emma Maria Wilhelmina, the Princess of the Netherlands, when she lay this commemorative stone. In 1927, the princess formally became an associate of the religious sect of this church. Between services, the church is used as a theater and for other events.

St. Martha

7) St. Martha

Construction on the St. Martha church was started in 1908-1909 and finished in 1924. St. Martha was built in Neo-Gothic style in two separate phases. The first section was raised in 1908-1909 and is composed of the choir, the center of church and the large side aisles. In 1924, the church was completed after the center of the church was extended and the facade and tower were added. These sections had been part of the initial design but were later built in a more modest Neo-Gothic style.
