Show sight on map

Mikael Church is a church building in Uppsala and belongs to the Cathedral Assembly in Uppsala diocese. The building is located on Skolgatan closest to the railway, and was built to serve what was then Uppsala's poorest area, Svartbäcken. The church could be built through a donation from August Mikael Posse. The church was designed by Axel Kumlien and was inaugurated on Mikaelidagen in 1892 and was called the Mikael Chapel at that time. The name here is not a saint name, but comes from the donor's name. At the end of the 19th century, various preachers served at the chapel. Among other things, in 1893 evening prayer for about 300 boys were held on Wednesdays and about 500 girls on Thursdays. In 1940, the chapel underwent a thorough renovation. The large altar window was set again and the interior was largely replaced. In 1960, the chapel came to be restored once again, and also came to be called the Mikael Church. Only now began to celebrate family worship and perform baptism in the church.
