The building

The church is reckoned as the first real "modern" church building in Norway. The architect Odd Østbye has created a building which break with all traditional church architecture. The architectonic idea behind Kirkelandet Kirke is "Quartz in roses", viz. the church is shining as a glowing quartz among the roses.

The church was nominated as the contribution from Møre og Romsdal to the "Building of the Century 1905-2005" (Århundrets byggverk 1905–2005) in Norway.
