International activities are available for everyone

Everyone is warmly welcome to join in the activities of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Membership of the church is not required for participation in parish activities.

We have regular worship services in English at the Joensuu parish hall during spring and autumn.  Other activities are also organized. You'll be best informed if you follow our Facebook-site, link below. You can reach church workers via phone, WhatsApp and email. You can find contact info for church workers if you scroll down this page, or you can use email: lutheranchurch.joensuu@evl.fi. If you have questions, need help or just want to talk with someone; do not hesitate to contact us.

In Joensuu, there are activities also in Russian, mostly in the Rantakylä parish and there's a mass in German once a year, organized by Finnish-German Society.

When we have our worship service in the parish hall, we usually have soup and tea after the service. Due to Covid-19 situation in Joensuu, in February 11th we won't have soup and tea. In February we also have Service of the Word instead of the Worship Service. It means we don't have the holy communion during the service.

Most of our worship services are also streamed live to YouTube on Toivon Tähden - Luterilainen kirkko Joensuussa channel

Want to join the church?

A person becomes a member of the Christian church through Holy Baptism. Baptism is a sacrament of the church. If you would like to become a member of the church as an adult, you will need to take part in adult confirmation instruction. After completion, you will be confirmed and also baptized, if you have not been baptized earlier. If you're interested, please, take contact to local parish.
