About the Church of Avedøre
The first church in Avedøre was a temporary, wooden church from 1964. Holger Jensen was the architect. The architect behind the present church from 1977 in Avedøre Stationsby is Palle Rydahl Drost. The four-winged church complex is made from reddish brown bricks. From the outside, it appears uninviting and fortress-like. But in between the wings you'll find an inviting patio. The bell tower, inspired by southern European style, is found in the south-eastern end of the church.
Café Hjertetræet can be found in the accretion from 2001.
In the church you can see:
Votive ship model from 1978, a copy of the frigate Neptunus, built by E. Ovdal Larsen.

A woven altarpiece with Whitsun motive from 1977, by Mette & Ulrik Rössing.
Four antependiums in the liturgical colours hanging on the pulpit, which are replaced over the year. Also by Mette & Ulrik Rössing.
