The Bonifacius Church of Medemblik is a Dutch church from 1404. A pastor of the church, the oldest mention of which dates back to 1118, had gone up in flames shortly before. The church ruins were used in the construction of the new church. The church was originally dedicated to Saint Boniface, later also to Saint Martin. In 1572, after the Reformation, the name Bonifacius was used for this Protestant church and Saint Martin became the main patron of the Roman Catholic parish in Medemblik. Despite being hit by two fires, the church was largely preserved. Nowadays the church is used by the Protestant community of Medemblik (PKN). The north aisle was used as a theatre under the name BON theatre. Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck married in this church in 1590.
