About
Ellingsoy Church was consecrated the 31st of August 1998, and is designed by the architect Oscar Norderval. The church is idyllically situated in Slotsvika, with a fjord view of islands and skerries. It is stretching upwards with a special roof construction, viewing God's heaven. Some may look upon the building as hands, gathering their finger tips at the top and covering the parish protectively. Other may remember the meeting tent carried by the Israelits throug the desert. The beautiful church art in Ellingsoy Church, created by the artist Hakon Gullvag, consists of a hanging cube in the middle of the church room. This is telling about the incidents of the Bible - the past. At the front is the priest and the altar, representing the present, and at the wall behind the altar is the circle with Jesus collecting souls to Heaven.

Denne kirken ligger ca 15 min utenfor byen og er svært vakker, meget moderne og verdt et besøk. Kirka er meget moderne i utformingen både utenpå og innvendig. Vil du oppleve en flott moderne kirke, tar du turen hit.

Denne kikren ligger maks 15 min. fra Ålesund sentrum. Gjennom Ellingsøytunnelllen er det bare å følge oppmerking mot Ellingsøya. Du vil se den staselige kirken på din høyre side når du kjører innover øyen. Her har jeg opplevd både gode og tunge stunder. Alt fra barnedåp, konfirmasjoner til begravelser. Kirken er med sin noe uvanlige form og innvendig dekorasjon vert en omvei for alle som elsker kirkebyggnigner. Opplever kirken som et romslig sted å være samtidig som den bygger med sitt spir og lys et håp og en vei mot lyset. Enjoy!
