A church you never forget”

Welcome to visit our wonderful church

The main entrance This entrance is said to be hard to find. It is also meant to be! The gate to the kingdom of  God could be hard to find. The four ribbons on the door symbolise that our way forward and upward leads through the four gospels.
The Belfry The belfry has four bells, which is unusual in a Swedish provincial church. Each bell bears the name of  an apostle (Petrus, Paulus, Andreas and Tomas) and has bell-verses written by the poet Bo Setterlind. The bells are moulded by Ohlsson’s bells-foundry in Ystad At 8 o’clock in the morning and at 6 o’clock in the evening the Bell of S:t Andreas chimes. Tuned to an A, and weighing 1102.5 pounds, it carries its message to the inhabitants of Klippan on their way to and from work or school. All might has no grace on earth, towards darkness shines the starry image, God’s love stronger than death   The Bell of S:t Petrus weighs 2646 pounds, is tuned to an E, Bo Setterlind’s words on the bell: All earthly flees its glory disappears,but the Lord’s rock remains forever   The Bell of S:t Paulus weighs 1543.5 pounds, is tuned to a G. The bell is used at Service when the congregation remembers the members who have recently passed away. Bo Setterlind’s words on the bell:  Fear not the final hour, when thou shalt leave all behind, torn from thy foundation, to become another creation   The Bell of S:t Tomas is the smallest one with its 661.5 pounds and is used when someone is baptized and his or her name is mentioned with God’s.  Faith is a rare pearl, to win and to cherish, it has within a celestial light, a force to flourish
The Bowls of Grace Outside the church, in the forecourt, stands the stone sculpture “The Bowles of  Grace” by the sculptor Christian Berg. The sculpture was consecrated at the 10-year anniversary of  the church by Bishop Olle Nivenius. The turned up bowl: We receive God’s Grace. The turned down bowl: We give to people what we have received from God.
