Brågarp Church


Prior to 1963, the name of this parish was Brågarp. In 1964 the Swedish Lutheran State Church changed the name of the parish to Staffanstorp.

Staffanstorp Municipality is a municipality in Skåne County, southern Sweden and its seat is located in the town Staffanstorp.
The municipality was formed by the local government reform of 1952, when 12 original units, created out of parishes in 1863, were united. The next reform in 1971 did not affect the size of this municipality.
In the municipality there are two localities which have grown into suburbs of Malmö, Staffanstorp and Hjärup, which both are typical residential districts dominated by detached houses built in the second half of the 20th century, wherefrom most people commute for work in the nearby cities of Lund and Malmö.
