The world's northernmost church, Svalbard Kirke, is located in Skæringa in Longyearbyen. The church is always open, and visitors are welcome to explore the church and connected sitting areas. The church boasts many local artworks and historical items from Longyearbyen.

Longyearbyen's local church hosts regular Lutheran services on Sundays and religious festivals, but is also home to many local activities. An evening service is held on Tuesdays and is followed by a social gathering in the lounge area, where visitors are welcome to drop in for a cup of coffee or tea and a waffle.
