Description

Modern stone church known for its unusual architecture. It was consecrated in 2002 and is a beautiful and unconventional stone church - a natural cathedral where the where the architects have integrated nature in the construction of slate, glass and steel.

Inside the church sees the bedrock in several places, and the room is light, with many interesting artistic details. The architects, Jensen & Skodvin, were awarded the prestigious Grosch medal for this work.

Hidden in Gunnar Torvund's altarpiece are three special stones; one from the Berlin Wall, one from Robben Island (where Mandela was imprisoned) and one from Jerusalem.


Norwegian name: Mortensrud Kirke
