Welcome to worship at Mindekirken!
Worship is the heart of Mindekirken’s church community. We gather together each Sunday to hear the word of God in word and song and thanks and praise God for his great mercy to us in Jesus Christ. Whether you are a life-long Lutheran, visiting from another church or entirely new to church, you are all welcome at Mindekirken.
NOTE! Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, Mindekirken is temporarily putting worship services in the building on hold. Instead we are offering our members and friends the opportunity to view Pastor Anne Brit Aasland's sermons online.
Here’s what to expect on a Sunday morning.
- Our 9:00 a.m. English worship service includes liturgies and hymns from the “Lutheran Book of Worship”, “With One Voice” and "Hymns and Spiritual Songs from the North" (Nordic hymns in English translation)
- Our 11:00 a.m. Norwegian worship service included liturgies and hymns from the Lutheran Church of Norway. The bulletin will include English translations of the liturgy and of the sermon.
- Communion is normally offered every first and third Sunday of the month, and the traditional festival days Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday. All baptized Christians who confess the Lordship of Jesus Christ are welcome.
- Sunday School and Nursery available for children and youth.
- The Music Ministry includes an adult choir and individual performances by members and visitors. A Santa Lucia pageant by our youth and Sunday School is performed each December.
- Large print worship materials and hearing aids are available.
- We offer ‘Kirkekaffe’ (church coffee) after each service – a chance to visit with friends and visitors alike over a tasty treat and good cup of coffee!
- Home visits with Holy Communion can be requested from the pastor.
