A very special church 特別な教会会堂

At Geilo the old church was too little and very inconvenient for different church programs. So they had a new church built in 2010. It is called Geilo kulturkyrkje the Culture Church of Geilo. Its architecture is quite special.

In the front of the sanctuary there is a beautiful stained glass window, where the sunshine gives a special light effect at the time of Sunday morning services.

Candle sticks… everything is quite unique.

The pulpit is very simple. They still have not afforded to buy a pipe organ. One organ pipe is hanging from the ceiling to remind everybody to contribute donations for a pipe organ.

Outside the church you see the ski slopes of Geilo.

In this very special church I had the privilege to preach at the Sunday service and other meetings during my visit in March.
