History

Work on the project began in 1958, and was opened on December 16, 1963. The architectural style of Kopavogskirkja is modernist. Its architecture is unusual, it is a cross section of two wide arches. Architect Herdur Bjarnason together with Ragnar Emilsson designed this church. The altar in the church was created in 1990 by the artist Steinund Thorarinsdottir, and the artist Barbara Arnason (1911-1975) designed various paintings that are in the church.
