Sunday Services are 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 page 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.
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. Significant Sundays we also have Johanna Mittilä leading Sunday School at the Kids' Corner. These are the Sundays Johanna will be present:
9.2 God's love, making art in red
15.3 Jesus our Mesiah, making art scrolls
5.4 Why the cross, a movie
3.5 Mothers' Day present, making craft
