Situated in Falkenberg old town, this church was the towns parish church during that era and was later burnt down during the period of northern seven years’ wars (1563-1570). After the wars, the church was rebuilt with the help of taxes from people. This building was replaced with another church in 1892 and was used as concert and gymnastics hall. Saint Lawrence church went through major renovations in 1903 and was used for religious purposes from 1928 to present times.

The church is located at the town center and was consecrated in 1892. Over the years, it has been renovated a couple to times to meet the requirements of the cohort era. Nevertheless, the interiors are just as impressive as the exteriors, some interesting artworks inside include the baptismal font of 1885 and the crucifix designed by artist Tore Heby. As such, Falkenbergs Kyrka belongs to the Diocese of Gothenburg, and still offers regular worship and services such as baptisms, communions, weddings and such.
