Address: Saltstraumen, 8056 Bodø

The church was originally built in 1886 by Eliseus Hansen. However, because of poor foundations it was dismantled in 1903 and moved to its present location.

The church contains 4 stained glass windows by Borger Hauglid, and a font made of local Fauske marble which dates from 1953. The two church bells are from 1885. The pulpit and altar area are said to have been created by Kristian Nilsen from Fjell and Kristian Jakobsen from Kodvåg. The altar piece was painted and gilded by Theodor Madsen. The organ was built in Norway in 1967 and has 16 voices. Its front is from the church’s original organ built in 1904.
