View of church

The first church built at Dokka was a wooden cruciform church that was built and consecrated in 1726. Not much is recorded about that church. In 1877, the old church was torn down and a new wooden long church was built on the same site. The new church was designed by Jacob Wilhelm Nordan. The main floor of the church measures about 357 square metres (3,840 sq ft) and there is also a 50-square-metre (540 sq ft) second floor seating gallery.[3][4][5]
