Welcome to Bergen
Welcome to Bergen, the city built between the seven mountains. The city has a long history, and served as the capital of Norway in the 13. Century. There are plenty of sightseeing opportunities in the city and the fjord, as well as hiking trails in the mountains. We recommend visiting Bryggen (the German dock), GamleBergen (the old city) and the lookout on Fløyen mountain.
The organizers of Lutheran Study Days are Bergen Congregation of DELK (Det Evangelisk Lutherske Kirkesamfunn – The Evangelical Lutheran Church) and the Bjørgvin diocese department of the FBB (For Bibel og Bekjennelse – an independent Norwegian Confessional movement).
DELK (Det Evangelisk Lutherske Kirkesamfunn – The Evangelical Lutheran Church Body) is the oldest Lutheran free church in Norway, with 14 congregations and about 3500 members. The congregation in Bergen was founded in 2002.
FBB is the oldest confessional movement in Norway, founded in 1919, and is built upon evangelical Lutheran faith. The Bible and the Lutheran confessions are the foundation for our life and ministry. FBB Bjørgvin is the local department of FBB.
