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.

For the next month or so due to the COVID-19 situation we are not going to hold English Service meetings in the church, see more information here (scroll down for English). However, we will have Iltakirkko meetings through streaming service and interpretation will be provided via Teams.

Iltakirkko Online Interpretation

On Sunday at 5 p.m.
1) Watch the video (and audio in Finnish) when the meeting starts from the church website or directly from the Youtube.
2) Interpretation into English is available from from the Teams.

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.

Please fill out the form to let us know that you would like to join a homegroup.

Homegroup leader, please give us an update on your group. Your homegroup information will be handled confidentially.
