Immanuel Church is a parish in Stockholm’s inner city – (T Rådmansgatan). We have our origins in four different mission congregations with large churches in the inner city. All were demolished during the transformation in Stockholm City during the 1960s/70s. In 1974, the new church was built. Our roots include a tradition of strong social commitment and an openness to different ways of believing.

We value that everyone is unique and want to offer a culture of respect and trust in ways of interpreting, seeking and expressing Christian faith. We celebrate worship in multiple languages and bring together a diversity of people from all over the world. Sectarianism, sentencing, and the disparagement of others have no place in our church. Our constant ambition is to strengthen people’s community, to bridge cultural and social barriers – both in our church and in society.

Many people know us through our big music business. We also run hotels, student accommodation, nursing homes and have a real estate company that manages the properties we have in Stockholm. The surpluses of these operations give us the resources to run other operations.

We are one of many congregations belonging to equmeniakyrkan in Sweden. About 45 employees work in the parish’s church activities.
