The main entrance to the church is through a lower vestibule, which also connects it to the centre's other main functions.

When Narvik Town Council purchased the buildings in 1997, a separate organisation was established to run the centre. The stakeholders are the Norwegian Maritime Authority, the Norwegian Transport Workers' Union and Narvik Town Council. Since then the facilities have simultaneously been used as an international seafarers' welfare centre, a venue for a variety of local cultural activities and church services. In 2011 "Frivillighetssentralen", a government sponsored volunteering service, moved in and this has helped securing continued funding. Every year thousands of visitors come to the centre, and these are both seafarers and local residents.
