The Protestant church of Damwâld-Moarrewâld or Saint Boniface’s church[1] is a religious building in Damwâld, one of the medieval churches in Friesland.

It is a Romanesque church built c. 1200 out of red brick with a straight closed choir dating from the early 16th century and a tower from the 13th century.[1] The pipe organ was built in 1895 by Bakker & Timmenga.[1]

The church is located on the Weg 4[2] and was once a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Saint Boniface but became a Protestant church after the protestant reformation. It is listed as a Rijksmonument, number 11675.[3]
