The old church of Sørvágur built in 1842 was built in traditional Faroese style: wooden, black with a white tower and turf on the roof. Unfortunately is was destroyed by a heavy storm in 1886. The church was already rebuilt on the same site the same year by local foreman Dánjal Niclasen.
The altarpiece is a replica of a Zealandic altarpiece by Carl Bloch from 1873.
The Dane Gustav Vilhelm Blom painted the replica that is the altarpiece in the church of Sørvágur.
Danjal Tavsen made the steel spire of the church. The spire was made for the 100-year birthday of the church in 1986. Now the old spire hangs in the porch.
Petur Jákup Hansen carved the wooden baptismal font in 1882.
