The history of this church is a curious phenomenon. In this area, Erick red developed the first permanent colony Viking after being banished three years in Iceland. Greenland is not a land with too many natural resources, so that trade is key to stock up on materials like wood. Since we must remember that in Greenland there trees. After his banishment try to trade with the Vikings who lived in Iceland but a problem arose him. The Vikings based their beliefs in gods associated with nature, but during his exile Christianity had already reached Iceland. For this reason forced you Erick red to convert to Christianity, baptized and commit themselves to spread it where out, including the construction of a church in the settlement of Qassiursaq.
