Stampersgat (NB): H.H. Martelaren van Gorcum (W. te Riele, 1923-1924)

In 1899 the parish of Stampersgat was founded and that same year a small church designed by P.J. van Genk was built. Obviously it was meant to be a temporary solution, as in 1923 it was already replaced by the current church by architect W. te Riele.

The church is an almost exact copy of the one Te Riele built in Lonneker (Ov) twelve years earlier, the main difference between the two churches being the interior; in Lonneker all brickwork was covered with plaster while in Stampersgat all bricks were left in sight. But externally it is hard to find any differences even in the details.

It's a three-aisled cruciform basilica in neo-Gothic style with a big square crossing-tower with an octagonal spire. Next to the facade is an octagonal stair-turret. The nave has a clerestorey with rather small windows. The side-aisles are wide and become even wider at the fourth trave, next to the transept. The choir is flanked by lateral chapels of a height equal to the side-aisles.

The church was closed in 2012. In 2018 it was bought by a private entrepreneur with the intention to rebuild it into apartments.
