St. Matthew's Parish - This Is Who We Are
Welcome to St. Matthew’s International Lutheran Church
We are an English-speaking congregation serving Christians in the Helsinki region. We have regular Worship Service with Holy Communion every Sunday at 2 pm at St. Matthew's Church (Matteuksenkirkko), our church right next to Itäkeskus Metro station in Helsinki.
Our parish is diverse coming from all around the world
While being part of the Lutheran Church of Finland, we warmly welcome and serve Christians of all denominations who would like to worship God in the English language. We have a varied multi-cultural parish where most who attend our services are not native English speakers and for some of us English is a second or even third language. We warmly welcome all who want to celebrate God, hear His word, learn about the Bible and meet fellow Christians as a family of God.
St. Matthew's Church offers full religious services
In our church we offer traditional religious rites and services, such as holy communion (also known as the Eucharist), diakonia work (also known church social work) and pastoral counselling. Our church performs baptisms, weddings and funerals. We have Bible study and various church activities from Kids’ Church to choir, family gatherings, movie nights, and field trips. All of our activities are in English. Come join us, you are warmly welcome!
