Kjøllefjord Church (Norwegian, Kjøllefjord kirke) is a parish church in Finnmark county, Norway (located within the Arctic Circle). The white, stone church was built in 1951 and was a gift from Denmark after the Second World War. It was also the first church that was rebuilt in Finnmark county after the war.
On Christmas Day, I along with many other people walked about twenty minutes to this church carrying very large candles. Though it was only 2:00 PM it was already getting quite dark. We attended a Christmas service here, entirely in Norwegian.
