The Protestant church of Twijzel or Saint Peter's church[1] is a religious building in Twijzel, Friesland, in the Netherlands. The current church was built in 1692 out of brick and has a triple closed choir.[1] The church is built against the medieval tower that dates from the 13th century.[1] On top of the tower is a gable roof which was placed in 1787.[1] The Pipe organ was built in 1905 by Bakker & Timmenga from Leeuwarden.[1] It was originally a Roman Catholic church, becoming a Protestant church after the Protestant Reformation. The building is located on Tsjerkebuorren 15.[2] and is listed as a Rijksmonument, number 7054 and is rated with a very high historical value.[3]
