The Dutch town of Edam is planning to make a church entirely from its famous cheese.
The model chapel will be a tenth of the size of the town’s 15th century church.
Residents came up with the idea to help raise funds for renovations for the church, including a new bell.
Edam’s 7,500 inhabitants have been asked to purchase bricks for about �7 each.
Organiser Bart van Dillen said: “We hope to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.”
The cheese church will be built with more than 10,000 Edam bricks and will be nine metres long and four metres wide.
It will go on display inside the real church from July 1 and will also be shown at the traditional Edam cheese market later this year.
This is outrageous, don’t they know that you should only use Swiss cheese since it is the only holey cheese. Will they have a statue of St. Maximilian
Kolbe Colby? Of course GIA and OCP can provide the cheesy music to go along with it. If the head priest blesses it with holy water will the cheese become pastorized? I wonder if they will also build a small home for their pastor, I would recommend cottage cheese. I will quit while I am ahead because I am starting to imagine Bishops with Green Bay Packer’s cheese-head mitres.
