I am born in Norway and have lived 22 years in Oslo and 2 years other places in Norway, and travelled my country a LOT. Generally speaking:
I can safely tell you that Norwegians are extremely non-religious, as the church attendance stat will tell. Those that go to church often do so for random reasons too. I am agnostic and been to church several times, Im also baptized and confirmed christian. None of this matters to me, and I believe most feel the same way I do.
Atheism isn't particularly practiced either, we simply don't think about the issue (may sound strange to some).
It is not normal to wear a T-shirt with a religious slogan, for example. If you did people would react with awkwardness, but probably politely not say anything.
To sum it up, most religious activities here would be based on tradition rather than belief. Religion (or anti religion) is very rarely brought up in regular conversations, and I've never met any civilian preacher of any kind ever. I am in the belief that we are generally very respectful about other's beliefs, as long as they are subtle about it (this includes atheists), and they are.
Hope that helps with any curiosity any foreigner would have.
