The church is idyllically situated in Slotsvika, with a fjord view of islands and skerries. It is stretching upwards with a special roof construction, viewing God's heaven. Some may look upon the building as hands, gathering their finger tips at the top and covering the parish protectively. Other may remember the meeting tent carried by the Israelits throug the desert. The beautiful church art in Ellingsoy Church, created by the artist Hakon Gullvag, consists of a hanging cube in the middle of the church room. This is telling about the incidents of the Bible - the past. At the front is the priest and the altar, representing the present, and at the wall behind the altar is the circle with Jesus collecting souls to Heaven. « less

The church has been through some changes and modifications since it was built. When the local council took over the responisibility of the church in 1901, the old pews with familynames were removed so that people could freely choose where they wanted to sit themselves. The old pillory was burned. The 'sidewings' of the altarpiece of 1712 is one of the older items that have been salvaged through fires etc. through the years. « less
