The British sovereign Queen Elizabeth II is to visit Amsterdam to mark the 400th anniversary of the English Reformed Church on the Begijnhof in February. She and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands will attend a service at the church on 5 February. The disused former convent building was granted to English-speaking worshippers who petitioned the Amsterdam town council for a place to worship in 1607. Dating from the end of the 14th century, the building is still the home of the English Reformed Church in Amsterdam. Now part of the Church of Scotland
