Skeby Church from the 12th century is beautifully located in Ørritslev between Otterup and Odense Fjord - the rectory is in turn in Skeby, hence the name - and it is a detour worth looking at!
Skeby church was built in 1150.
The first 100 years, Skeby church was called Saint Anna Church, named after Saint Anna, the mother of Virgin Mary and the patron saint for housewives, single mothers, sailors and miners. She was a very popular saint in Scandinavia.
The church was renovated in 1955.
There is a candle globe in the church, where you can light a candle.
Access to the church by appointment with the sexton.
