The Armenian community in Denmark numbers approximately 1,200.[1] They mainly used the churches in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense.[2] The Armenians were served in the church with a priest from the Armenian community in Sweden.[1] In 2003, an agreement was signed between the Danish and Armenian governments, allowing forced repatriation of illegal immigrants. 100 Armenians living illegally in Denmark were reported to be subject to the measure.[3]

The community[edit]

In 2005, The Danish Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs recognised the Armenian Apostolic Church in Denmark as a congregation with juridical rights to administer marriage ceremonies and with certain privileges as regards taxation.[1]
