Torshov church (Torshov kirke) was consecrated in 1958. The church is located in Torshov kirkepark, between Åsengata and Nordkappgata. The building was built of stone and wood with copper plates, and has 400 seats. The church was designed by the architects Ulf Nyquist and Per Sunde, while the interior decorations were designed by Frithjof Tidemand-Johannessen. 
The area is named after an old farm, Torshov gård (Old Norse Þórshof). The first element is the genitive of Þórr, the last element is hof, meaning shrine or temple.
