It is located in the fishing village of Henningsvær, located on some small islands immediately south of the large island of Austvågøya. It is the church for the Henningsvær parish which is part of the Lofoten prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white, wooden church was built in a rectangular style in 1974 by the architect Odd Storm. The church seats about 250 people.[1][2]
