Concerning COVID-19/coronavirus

Churches should always offer a safe place to be. Even though some activities now have to stop for a while, that does not mean that we stop being a church. Activities can be cancelled on short notice, so check the calendar on our website or our app “Kyrkguiden”.

Information in English

Church of Sweden is continuously monitoring the situation regarding the coronavirus outbreak and following information mainly from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD) and the Swedish Public Health Agency. Advice and recommendations from these public authorities are being continuously updated.

With the government’s ban on public gatherings of 50 people or more, we are limiting the number of worshipers to services.

Please remember:

• Go home if you feel ill or have cold symptoms

• Keep your distance from others when sitting in pews

• Do not hug or shake hands with others

Each Sunday you can watch that week’s service from home in Swedish.

The Swedish Church in Umeå is taking these measures based on the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden and the guidelines issued by the Church of Sweden at the national level and the Luleå Diocese.
