Partnership History

  • Christianity came to Norway around 1000 AD, from the British Isles, Germany and Friesland
  • In Norway, about 76% of Norwegians are still members of the Church of Norway
  • Last year the Church of Norway was separated from the State, an action which has led the church to re-evaluate its role in society
