A history of the church (in Dutch) reports that at the 1957 consecration there were two loud bells in the tower, made by Eysbouts.  A third was added in 1961, and there is space for a fourth in the bell frame.  The three bells also function as part of the carillon.

The Dutch Reliwiki page about this church has photos of it, and repeats that history.

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the church has photos of it, but does not mention any bells.
