Grurup Church in Sydthy

Take a walk in the past

Grurup Village Church is situated on a hill in the small parish south of Bedsted, on the road to Hurup.

It is a coal church with Romanesque choir and nave of granite. The church used to have a tower, that was removed in 1696. Now the church has a belfry of brick along with the choir east gable.

The porch is from 1936. The altar has in front a semicircular granite. The altarpiece is a so-called Lutheran winged altar from 1600. There have been new pictures in 2007 painted by Mogens Hoff - the subject is the resurrection of Christ with women out of the grave. The old altarpiece of the crucifixion scene was painted by Th√łger Trane in 1711, and now hangs on the south wall.
