This church was built around 1150, and is a Church of Norway (Lutheran) church.
The church was destroyed by fire and rebuilt several times over the centuries. Today it is known as “The City Mission – Open Church.” An inclusive church, it hosts a lot of concerts, welcomes people to come and pray during the day, and engages in social work with the poor and needy. Historically, a member of this church was a missionary in Greenland, and the famous and controversial lay preacher-reformer of the 19th century, Hans Nielsen Hauge was associated with this congregation.
