Meloy Soendre Free Church
We are a church uniquely located in three communities in southern Meloy region: Aagskardet, Halsa and Engvaagen. We belonging to the Evangelical Lutheran Free Church of Norway, and also work closely with other churches in our communities. Our history goes way back until 1891, and is well known in our local communities. Being located in three different places also allows for individual differences, as the congregation mainly is focused on services close to home. Linked up with our denomination’s missions projects, the church is involved in various ministries abroad.
Our motto is: Knowing Jesus and making Him known throughout our communities. Weekly, people of all ages meet and share fellowship. You will experience engaged people in various services such as in music, in the kitchen, in Sunday school, Youth events, in technical assignments, washing, and devotions & prayer service etc.
Being part of a church is to serve one another with the gifts God has given us. This is how the congregation may become like a large family. You are heartily welcome in our communities.
The church is to a great extent run by voluntary peoples in various ministries. We have also two people employed: A youth worker in 50% position and pastor in 75% position.
