Where People Meet

God's House is an innovative collaboration between Christians and Muslims in the Stockholm suburb of Fisksätra. Together we aim to build an interfaith community centre consisting of a church and a mosque joined by a glazed central atrium and in doing so create a positive space for meetings, activities and opportunities.

By promoting cooperation across religious and cultural boundaries God’s House will show the way forward towards a hopeful and peaceful future where, by celebrating our differences and connecting our shared values, we rejoice at seeing a brother and a sister in the people we meet.

A God's House for People

Three denominations in Fisksätra – the Muslims Association in Nacka, the Catholic Diocese of Stockholm and Nacka Parish (the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sweden) – aim to build a communal God's House by joining a new mosque and a glazed atrium to the already existing Fisksätra Church. These improved and enlarged premises will provide exciting opportunities for interfaith connections between people.
