Overview

The Immanuels church has an equally dramatic past like the town itself. The beautiful building as we see it today is the fourth church to have been erected on the site. The first church was destroyed by the Colbjornsen brothers in 1716, when they set fire to the town to get the Swedes out of town. The new church was finished in 1729 and was called Immanuels church. This was a roomy choir church in classical baroque style. It is said to have been one of the most momumental baroque churches we have ever had in Norway. The church stood until 1826, when a violent fire ravished through Fredrikshald, leaving only the brick walls. It was decided that the new church was to be made using the old walls. The best architect of those times, Cgr, G, Grosch was given the job. The Immanuels church as we know it today was unveiled in 1833, and is the fourth church to stand on this site.
