Church of Our Saviour is a baroque church in Copenhagen, Denmark, most famous for its helix spire with an external winding staircase that can be climbed to the top, offering extensive views over central Copenhagen. It is also noted for its carillon, which is the largest in northern Europe and plays melodies every hour from 8 am to midnight.HistoryWhen Christian IV planned Christianshavn in 1617, it was intended as an independent merchant's town on the island of Amager and it therefore needed a church. A temporary church was inaugurated in 1639 but construction of the present Church of Our Saviour, the design of Lambert van Haven, did not start until 1682. The church was inaugurated 14 years later in 1695 but important interior features like the altar had a notoriously temporary character and the tower still had no spire. The church got its permanent altar in 1732 but plans for construction of the spire was not revitalized until 1747 under the reign of Frederik V. The new architect on the project was Lauritz de Thurah. He soon abandoned van Haven's original design in favour of his own project that was approved by the King in 1749. Three years later the spire was finished and the King climbed the tower at a ceremony on 28 August 1752.

The Church of Our Lady is the cathedral of Copenhagen. It is situated on Frue Plads and next to the main building of the University of Copenhagen.The present day version of the church was designed by the architect Christian Frederik Hansen in the neoclassical style and was completed in 1829.HistoryConstruction of the original Collegiate Church of St. Mary, began no later than 1187 under Bishop Absalon. The church was located on the highest point near the new town of Havn, later Copenhagen. Bishop Absalon (1128–1201) was Bishop of Roskilde (Zealand), Denmark's capital of that era, and spent most of his life securing Denmark from foreign attacks. He built many churches and monasteries, while also founding Copenhagen as Denmark's Baltic port city. Named Archbishop of Lund in 1178, Absalon accepted only under threat of excommunication. St. Mary's construction continued sporadically until 1209, when it was consecrated by Absalon's successor, Bishop Peder Sunesen on Annunciation Sunday in March, which became the church's traditional feast day. The church was built in Romanesque style with its half-rounded arches inside and out.In 1314, a fire destroyed the limestone church so completely that it was rebuilt in the popular new building material of the day, over-sized red brick. The style of building was Gothic, with its typical pointed arches. The rebuilding of the simple church with a long nave and choir continued until 1388. Due to a lack of money, the great tower was not built until the reign of Christian II. It was as high as the church was long, and from artwork of the day, out of proportion to the size of the church.
Her er lidt info til musikere og kunstnere der har lyst til at optræde i Trinitatis Natkirke:
Vi har natkirke hver tirsdag og arbejder ud fra konceptet, at hvis vi blot åbner vores døre og møder kunstnerne med respekt, vil de respektere os tilbage. Aftenen planlægges derfor i samarbejde mellem musiker/kunstner, Rune (præsten) og mig. Vi sætter sådan set ingen grænser for hvad der kan ske, siges eller gøres, blot det sker i respekt for kirkerummet, som jo er gammelt og fredet. Det er dog vigtigt at pointere, at vi jo er kirke og ikke konkurrenter til spillesteder og kulturhuse. Det er helt fint, at I ikke spiller religiøs musik eller er et religiøst band. Det er netop en af de ting, vi finder spændende i natkirken - at kirken bliver brugt til et møde mellem klassiske gudstjenesteelementer (prædiken, nadver mm) og så "moderne" musik med rod et andet sted end i det kirkelige. Det er derfor vigtigt, at I er med på at understøtte gudstjenesten musikalsk. Konkret skal I altså spille under f.eks. en bøn, tekstlæsning eller prædiken.
Vi kan desværre ikke tilbyde noget honorar, da vi ikke har nogen form for indtægt på aftenerne. Vi betaler selvfølgelig for transport og giver lidt mad.
Vi har mixer, guitarforstærker, basforstærker og -højtaler, PA, mikrofoner, monitorer og projektorer til visuals.
