Immanuel Church (Swedish: Immanuelskyrkan) is church building located in the central parts of the town of Stockholm in Sweden.[1] The church was designed by Sture Frölén. It was built in 1974. The lot it was built on earlier housed a tram depot at the intersection of Birger Jarlsgatan and Kungstensgatan.[2][3]

The entire block consists of offices and a hotel. The block was built between 1970–1974 on behalf of the church. The church has been considered a nice example of 1970s modernist architecture. It is of major historical value according to the Stockholm City Museum.[4]
