Denmark > Copenhagen City > Holmens


A special congregation for naval personnel was begun in 1617, and in 1619 Holmens church was dedicated. At first, only seamens families worshiped there, but eventually, a civilian congregation was created. In 1805, it was expanded to receive part of the discontinued Skt. Nikolaj parish. In 1878, it received part of Garnisons parish, and a part of Christiansborg Slotsogn in 1965. Also, a part of the parish was incorporated into the new Skt. Pauls parish in 1877.

Also known as Bremerholm parish.
