Skåre kirke i Haugesund

Church exterior

Skåre kirke is an octagonal church built in 1858 in Haugesund, Rogaland.

The building is of wooden construction and has 550 seats.

The church is known as a kulturkirke/'culture church'.

'When new in 1856, the Skaare kirke did not have an organ, but goldsmith and organist Hartvig Jeppesen let the church borrow his harmonium that was placed on a narrow gallery over the altar.'
  • Voltmeter and swell position indicatior
  • Hindered access to 'nightingale' due to staging
  • Nightingale pin (in the 'out' position)

The church's first organ - two manuals, 8 stops - was built by local organbuilder Andreas Landrog in 1908.

The current main organ was built by Steinmeyer in the 1950s following the construction of the Steinmeyer organ in Vår Frelsers.
