Long Description:
This serves as Clock and Radio Mast as well as a place of worship,

The steeple is open to the public against a small charge for those who use the elevator, which proceeds go towards the maintenance of the church. There are three big bells in the steeple and a carillon of 29 bells. The big bells carry the names Hallgrimur, Gudrun and Steinunn, named after the Rev., his wife and a daughter, who died young. All the bells are gifts from individuals or groups. They are inscribed with the names of their donors and the person in whose memory the gifts are made. The carillon is the first in Iceland and the church is one of only three churches in Reykjavik, which chime on the hour.
