I'm not a religious person, but this church is a must to be seen from inside. Beauty comes from within they say.And to see the sum of Kjell Nupens artwork from glasstained windows to the other parts inside is just beauty.

This church is open to visitors. It is a beautiful church inspired by the works of the late artist Kjell Nupen. Nupen is famous for his paintings and works in glass. Well worth a visit.
