Frogner Church (Norwegian: Frogner kirke) is a church in the Frogner borough of the city of Oslo, Norway. The congregation is part of the Church of Norway, the country's state church.

History[edit]

It was designed by the architect Ivar Næss (1878–1936) and built in 1907. The Church's main facade is made of granite, while the secondary facades against courtyards are made of brick. The church is integrated into a row of houses and apartment buildings.

A chapel associated with the church was built in 1937–39 by the architect Johan Meyer. The Gimlehøyden district surrounding the church was built in the years 1916–1925 and designed by architects Harald Hals, Harald Aars and Lorentz Harboe Ree.
