St. Andrew’s church
Saint Andrew’s church is situated at Fridhemstorget in the north-western part of Malmö and was opened in 1959. It was designed by the architects Thorsten Roos (also designed Kronprinsen) and Bror Thornberg.
Some have called it the “train station” which is a bit unfair.
The fresco by Nils Aron Berge
The first thing that strikes you when you get in is the height and the giant fresco by Nils Aron Berge, the tallest in Sweden. It shows the apostle Andrew’s life.
Jan Brazda’s stained glass windows
To the right are some fine stained glass windows by Jan Brazda (Wikipedia). You can also see his work in the Cathedrals in Växjö and Karlstad.
The Triumphal crucifix by Thure Thörn
The Triumphal crucifix is made by the Malmö artist Thure Thörn and the church organ is made by D. A. Flentrop Orgelbouw in Holland.
The church belongs to S:t Petri Parish in Diocese of Lund.
