  • One of the most beautiful temples of Copenhagen. Churchill Park and is owned by the Anglican Church. It is also called "the English church". Was built in Gothic style in 1885-1887gg. mainly for the needs of the English community in Copenhagen, lay competed Alexandra Princess of Wales. Interestingly, the consecration of the Church in 1887. took place in the presence of the Prince and Princess of Wales, the King and Queen of Denmark, the Greek monarchs and curiously the Russian Tsar Alexander III and Tsaritsa Maria fedorovna. The Church was named in honor of Saint Alban the martyr, who lived in England in the third century BC and deceased during the persecution of Christians in the 302-305, respectively under the Emperor Diocletian. Unfortunately could not get inside because the Sunday service at 10.30, as written in the Declaration.

  • This beautiful church is located in the wonderful environment of the Park of Churchill and before arriving to the famous Little Mermaid. The photographs from all the angles of this place are great.

  • St. Alban's Church is located right next to the Gefion fountain and Kastellet. The building itself very nicely presented on the background of the Park and surrounding area.

  • If you have worship service at Sunday at Copenhagen heart, this is a church with english service. I have visited third time today and it was nice and good with communion service at every Sunday.
  • Tore Dokkethal wrote about "manipulation" to give a donation. I witnessed no such thing. I'm not religious and I rarely bother with churches. They welcomed visitors and had prepaped two-sided infosheet (available in great many languages). Glass paintings caught my eye and I found myself marveling the skill involved for lengthy time. Yes, I made a modest donation, if for no other purpose than to offset the sand I dragged in with me. No one even hinted that I should and I would have not even realised the small plate on the table was for that purpose had I not seen the person infront of me drop a few coins into it. This despite the two persons standing there handing out the info sheets of various languages.
  • Beautiful church! The volunteers were very helpful and they have translations in English. Free.
  • Beautiful Church. If youre here, Check the castell as well.
  • The scenery is amazing. You can take full-frame pictures from the water fountain.
