Ullern Church is a cruciform Romanesque church built in 1903 on the Holgerslyst property in the Ullern district of Oslo, Norway. It is the parish church for the Ullern congregation in the Vestre Aker Deanery of the Diocese of Oslo.The church is built of stone and has seating for 800 people. It was designed by the architect Harald Bødtker.The original plans for the church had been drawn up by Georg Andreas Bull, Oslo's city surveyor. The plans were reworked by the architect Johan Storm Munch in 1899 and approved by the municipality. The drawings were lost that year, when the farm where Munch had his office burned down. The assignment then went to Harald Bødtker, who had just been hired as the municipal architect in Aker.The cruciform structure is dominated by an imposing central tower. The tower is square and has three windows on each side. It is topped by a tall hip roof covered in copper.InteriorThe church is dominated by its choir apse with the fresco The Ascension, painted by Eilif Peterssen in 1908–1909. It was created in close collaboration with Domenico Erdmann. Over the altar, in front of the fresco, is a marble baldachin designed by Bødtker.The pulpit was also designed by Bødtker, and the baptismal font is from the company Johs Grønseth & Co. The stained glass dates from 1915–1915; it was designed and created by various artists, including Gabriel Kielland and Karl Kristiansen.
