Sunday Services


OBSERVE! We can not gather for Sunday service in church now because of the coronavirus COVID-19. In stead we are livestreaming our services in our Facebook group "Lutheran church in Vaasa". 

Here you can read about the instructions we follow, as an effort to prevent the virus from spreading. (updated 4.4.2020)

Sunday Services are otherwise held on Sundays at 1 pm in Palosaari Church.  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.)
