If you pay Norwegian taxes and have a Norwegian ID number, a portion of your taxes automatically goes to the Norwegian Church unless you submit a short form stipulating that you have joined another religious group. The annual income we receive from each new registered member of the Bergen Anglican Congregation is very important to our survival as a parish.
Find out more information about becoming a registered member of the congregation by reading the PDF Membership Form linked below. Submitting the form costs you nothing and benefits our church greatly.
Volunteers are the life-blood of the Bergen Anglican Congregation. We rely on our congregation members to fulfill many important volunteer roles:
coffee hour hosts
Sunday school helpers
committee (vestry) members
