Sundays at 11:00 am we meet for service in Sentermenigheten. You are warmly welcome to uplifting preaching, worship, and fellowship!

A quarter of an hour before the service, there is a simple serving of fruit and coffee in the foyer.

During the service, you can participate in praise and worship, and be encouraged and challenged by the preaching of God’s word. The expression is fresh and modern, but in a way that appeals to both young and older adults. Concurrently with the service, there is a separate Sunday school for the children. After the service, there is church coffee with the sale of food and drink.

Welcome to service in Sentermenigheten!

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of offer is there for my children during the service? We offer Sunday school for children aged 3-12 years. The children are taken care of by caring adults with experience with children. You can, of course, be with your children the first time.

What is it like to come as new to the service? We have meeting hosts who are available for meeting visitors and who welcome at the entrance. There is also a staffed information desk in the foyer.

How long does the service last? A service will usually last 1½-2 hours. The cafeteria is open after the service.

What kind of people come to the service? You will meet many different people at the service, both in terms of profession, social status, ethnicity, and age.

Is the service in Sentermenigheten exactly like a service in the state church? The expressions at the service in Sentermenigheten will vary from a traditional service in a state church congregation in terms of expression. We do not have a fixed order of service, but are freer in terms of order and forms of expression. You will experience music in the form of praise and worship with active participation from the congregation. The speaker does not follow the church year’s texts, but the sermon often forms part of a sermon series that runs over several Sundays.

Do you have communion at the service? Every other Sunday we have communion at the service. Communion is a memorial meal over Jesus’ death and resurrection, and is for all who believe in Jesus as their savior. You do not have to be a member of Sentermenigheten to take communion with us. If you do not wish to participate in communion, you are, of course, free not to participate in the communion act.

Can I see baptism at the service? In Sentermenigheten, we practice believers’ baptism. We do not baptize infants, but believe that baptism should come after faith. Therefore, the person to be baptized must be old enough to have a consciousness about faith. We have a baptismal pool in the assembly hall, and baptism is performed at the service. The frequency is determined by the demand from people who want to be baptized.

Is there speaking in tongues at the service? Speaking in tongues is a prayer language that God has given to all believers. Speaking in tongues will not be experienced as intrusive at the service in Sentermenigheten, but you will experience that speaking in tongues is practiced in worshiping God at services.

Does it cost anything to participate in the service? It is free to attend the service, but there is an opportunity to give a gift during the collection. The congregation is largely run by voluntary gifts from members who send money via the bank.

Can I get prayer for personal needs at the service? We believe that God is a good God who hears prayer. During each service, we pray for prayer needs that are reported via the internet or in writing to the meeting host or meeting leader. During this prayer part, we also pray anonymously for personal needs that are in the hall. Sometimes there is also an opportunity to be prayed for by the laying on of hands at the end of a service.

What kind of clothes should I wear at the service? There is no specific dress code at the service. Here you come in the clothes you like.
