Sunday Services

Sunday Services are held on Sundays at 1 pm in Palosaari Church. During the summer months, Jun-Aug, we only gather once a month.

Currently this is the only traditional-style (liturgical) weekly English-language Church Service in Vaasa.  The coffee time upstairs after the service is a great way to make friends. 

Aside from the brief list on our home page, our Facebook group will usually have more information about upcoming services, with announcements of Service details usually posted during the week leading up to the Service.  This can include information about what to expect in the Service, as well as any unusual arrangements, where the service gets moved to a different location.

Kids' Corner

At the back of our church you can find a Kids Corner with books, toys and a small altar. Parents can sit there with the kids and still be a part of the Sunday Service. 

Arabic Service

Worship services in Arabic are held in Ristinummi Chapel (Kappelinmäentie 8) every Sunday at 3 p.m. At summertime services are held in Huutoniemi Church. These services are organized by the Sudanese community in Vaasa but everybody is welcome to join in the worship.
