Long Description:
[NL] De kerk is in 1915 gebouwd en ontworpen door architect A.Th. Elmpt. In 1999 is het een rijks monument geworden (512350)
De kerk heet 100 zitplaatsen en wordt nog regelmatig gebruikt. In het vakantie seizoen zijn er elke zondag morgen nog diensten.
De kerk is vernoemd naar St Egbert. Deze leidde een klooster in Ierland, vanwaar monniken uitgezonden werden naar de Friezen; o.a. St Willibrord.
Naast de kerk was vroeger een vakantiehuis (1922-1965) voor kinderen uit de grote steden. Dit is later afgestoten.
Het interieur is geïnspireerd op Romaanse stijl. Het heeft een houten plafond. De kruiswegstaties in 14 afbeeldingen vind je langs de muren. Op elke statie komen kinderen voor, dit heeft te maken met het vroeger verbonden kindertehuis.
De twee sobere Maria beelden zijn van de hand van Martin van Waning.
