Swedes, when it comes to matters of faith are largely illiterate and sceptical. They don’t understand it and sometimes they fear it. Their concepts of what church should be is often restricted to their vague notions of the Church of Sweden; the church to which they probably belong to but never visit. It’s a concept shaped by priests, bishops & buildings.
For the most part Grace Church which we’re a part of, meets in houses. Which makes the threshold for Swedes to visit, a tad daunting. Homes are not places you just visit unless you’re related or best friends, so church in a house is an idea that just confuses most Swedes.
With that in mind we made a little video to help explain how we think about church. A Swedish version is in the works.
