Church services held to remember Norway massacre

On July 22 2011 Anders Behring Breivik murdered 69 adults and children on the island of Utoya.

He was also behind a car bomb at the government quarter in Oslo that killing a further eight people.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg has described the event as "a very sad" day that shook the small nation.

She told Norwegian news agency NTB "it is always very onerous".

On Friday she will lead government tributes at wreath-laying ceremonies and at a service in Oslo Cathedral.

Members of Norway's royal family, victims' relatives and representatives from a youth group that organised the summer camp on will also be attending the church service.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
