Owner description: Som Church was consecrated in November 2004. The church has a distinctive style with its red-brick construction and a long glass painting stretching from the altar over the roof to the main door, with the motto from darkness to light. The glass painting is altogether 43 metres long and 1.8 metres broad. This is the work of the artist Kjell Nupen. The church`s architects are Arild Lauvland and Arne amland. Organ meditation, every Wednesday at 13.00.

This church is something special. The artist Kjell Nupen had the idea to create something between a cathedral and a community church. His idea was to give us a church to be proud of for centuries. All the glasworks gives you the feeling of walking from darkness to light. Christ Crusified will be the uprising Christ when lightened. Behind the alter - the artist has etched in a message to the officiating priest: " see the man".

This is artwork.
