Upcoming Events

Every Sunday we worship at 11.00. Most Sundays it is a Sung Communion. There is an All Age Communion Service on the first Sunday of most months.

We also have a Children's Church and Youth Group

  • You can download a copy of our Christmas Services flyer here. Please help us to spread the word about our many Advent and Christmas events. Printed copies of the flyer are available at church.
  • November is Membership Month at Saint Edmund’s and so we’re all being asked to make a special effort to reach out to potential new members. The financial support we receive – per registered member – from the Norwegian state and local municipalities is a crucial part of maintaining and developing our mission and ministry; so please take one of the new membership forms – available at the back of the church, or for download here  – and help us grow!
  • The Youth Group welcomes members aged 11 to 14. We usually meet on the second Sunday of the month. New members are always welcome.
  • Children’s Church is a vital part of our mission at Saint Edmund’s and we are blessed to have wonderful volunteers nurturing our young people in their faith. If you would like to know more about this important ministry, and help out in various ways, then please contact the Chaplain.
  • Bible Study is held after church coffee, around the font (from 12.40 to 13.30), on the first and the last Sundays of each month, led jointly by Ekene and Darren (Chaplain). It begins from the bible passages read during the service and on the service sheet for that Sunday. During Advent, we will meet every Sunday to discuss Advent for Everyone: A Journey through Luke by Tom Wright. All are welcome to join any or all of the sessions. 
  • The Ladies Guild is a group of ladies from the congregation who meet at 11:30am usually about once a month, where we bring along some items of food for lunch, and enjoy each other's company during our combined lunch. At the moment we have no set programme, but have interesting discussions and are a good support for each other. We would love some new members, so if you are interested please contact Jean Oeding or Amy Eriksen - 95 15 52 41 - for more details.
  • The annual Ecumenical Service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be held on Thursday 24 January, starting at 18.30 at the Swedish Church (Margaretakyrkan). This “Prayer Walk” comprises one church service held in five different church buildings. In addition to the Swedish Church and Saint Edmund’s, those taking part will participate in prayers in Trefoldighetskirken (Church of Norway), Saint Olav’s (Roman Catholic Church) and the Church of the Annunciation (Greek Orthodox Church). The theme of this year’s event is “Justice, and only justice you shall pursue.” (Deuteronomy 16:18-20). The theme was chosen by the Church in Indonesia. Further details about this global ecumenical event can be found on the website of the World Council of Churches: https://www.oikoumene.org
