Text description provided by the architects. The church is situated in an open landscape on a 2-hectare piece of land, between Berg school and Nevlunghavnveien. The different functions of the church are organized along the axis extended from the access road, through the portal beneath the detached tower, over the church square, into the church room and continuing through the window in the choir, towards the light (which in this case is the sea).

The church room is the center of the church, and this is emphasized both in the exterior and the interior by the big volume of the room, the shape of the roof and the use of material indoors (brick). It has a square shape, with a significant roof structure of glulam which is held up by twelve columns (symbol of the twelve apostles). The pyramid roof on top of the cube ends in a glass prism that lets light down through the roof structure in the center of the room (symbol of Christ).
