English Service

Welcome to your home away from home!


English Service on Sunday at 5 p.m. in Alasali

Welcome, just come as you are! In the English Service (ES) you will meet people from all over the world. We all shear a common desire to know God and to make Him known. We speak more than twenty different languages. Many of us came to Tampere for work or studies, some just moved here, others were born here. We also welcome a lot of visitors every year.

We seek to worship God, our Creator and Lord in Spirit and in Truth. We gather together to celebrate His awesome love and express our gratitude towards him. We want to serve each other, our community and beyond being motivated by the love of Christ and with the gifts and abilities that we have received from Him.

English Service will be resuming meetings on Sunday 9th August at 5 pm.

We will be sharing testimonies, praying together, and reading and dwelling in God’s Word. We will worship Jesus but not by singing together. Welcome!

In order to do so safely, we will be introducing measures to maintain social distancing and hygiene. These include the following:

  • Wash hands in the bathroom before joining the meeting; the cloakroom area won’t be in use.
  • Please leave the door to the hall open to avoid touching the door handle.
  • Only sit with people from your own household.
  • We won’t be having a children’s meeting, so parents and guardians are responsible for their children during the service.
  • We won’t be singing together.
  • There won’t be coffee fellowship after the service.

Please don’t come to the meeting if you are unwell with fever or any other Covid19 symptoms. If you have a prayer request or wish to be contacted by someone from the church, please send an email to: tampereenglishservice[@]gmail.com

Sunday School

Children are more than welcome at the ES. They form a very important part of our community!

Children’s Church (Skidikirkko) for ages 3-11 takes place every Sunday 4.45 PM – 6.30 PM. Ages 3-5 gather in Kellarisali and ages 6-11 in Ylisali – if you are unsure where these are, please ask for directions. This is a joint activity with the Finnish evening service (Iltakirkko) which combines a fun mix of Bible message, crafts, and games. Children under school age should be escorted to – and collected from the venue.

If you would like to volunteer to help with this ministry or have any questions – please fill out the contact form below!

In addition, Tampere Pentecostal Church has a broad range of ministries for children and youth, including Royal Rangers, summer camps, and youth evenings. See website for more details (in Finnish).



Homegroups are great to get connected with others in our fellowship. In the homegroups you will be encouraged, and grow in Christ. They are an integral part of our church’s life together. These are small groups meet through out the week in people’s homes or in other locations as decided in the groups to delve deeper into God’s Word, share testimonies, serve one another and build deeper friendships.
