The Aa-church is a prestigious and versatile venue for conferences and dinners, lectures, debates, symposia, exhibitions and concerts. It is also an elegant venue for weddings and wedding receptions as it is licensed for civil marriage ceremonies.
The Aa-church is located in the historic centre of the city of Groningen, where it has been a prominent landmark for nearly eight centuries. In the 1970s and 80’s it underwent an extensive restoration and a renovation of the interior was completed in 2007.
Bijzondere Locaties Groningen has been in charge of its management since 2005. The church now has all modern conveniences: central heating, excellent lighting, modern sanitary facilities and a well-equipped catering room.
Lectures, corporate presentations, concerts, dinners, exhibitions: any event that is in keeping with the character of this venue is welcome here, be it large or small.
The Aa-church is easily reached by car or public transit. It is just a short walk from the train station and there are several multi-storey car parks in the vicinity, all within walking distance.
The nave is the largest part of the church, it is where the congregation used to sit when worship services were held here. Now it is the ideal spot for events that require a large space, such as lectures, presentations, conferences, concerts, theatre shows and exhibitions. But in spite of its height, its dimensions have retained a human scale and events here still have an intimate atmosphere.
