Overview

Nærbø church was completed in 2005, designed by architect Gunnar Fossen.

It is decorated by one of Norway's foremost artists, Gunnar Torvund. Christian symbols, such as the fish and lamb, are embedded into the floor itself. At the front of the spacious church stands Torvund's striking altarpiece.

Three intense blue slabs, and a lush garden that echoes the ornamentation of Norwegian folk art, rise from a rock dug up from Jæren. Suspended above are symbols, some Christian, others universal - and in their midst hangs a Christ figure. Light pours in through a window behind and above the towering altarpiece, completing it as though it were a heavenly ladder.
