Church of Kirkja

The church was built in the style of the wooden Faroese churches and was consecrated on 28 May 1933

The only church on the island of Fugloy was originally in the village of Kirkja (Kirkja means church in Faroese). However, when the church was near-derelict in the 1830s, it was moved. At that time there was hardly a man in Kirkja who could become a church warden since most of them were lost at sea in a boat accident in 1818. A new church was therefore built in the other village on Fugloy, Hattarvík. There was no church in Kirkja for 100 year, but in the 1930s the desire to have a church in Kirkja had grown so strong that the villagers made a great effort to built a new one. The church was built in the style of the old wooden Faroese churches was consecrated on 28 May 1933.
