In 2006, the Vallensbæk Parish announced an architectural competition for a new church, the Church of the Epiphany (Helligtrekongers Church), because the old church from the Middle Ages had become too small for the number of participants in the church’s large events. The assignment was carried out by architect Peder Elgaard under the auspices of Erik Møller’s Architectural Office, now ERIK architects.

A New Master Plan
The number of parishioners in Vallensbæk is growing, and the parish therefore needed more burial sites both by Helligtrekongers and Vallensbæk Church. With Elgaard Architecture as advisers, the parish council therefore decided to transform the former “disaster cemetery” set up during the Cold War into a new park cemetery, and in this connection the cemetery gardeners’ facilities, such as the machine and personnel buildings, were also upgraded and rebuilt in order to integrate these and the new cemetery in the master plan for the whole area.
