Kipparinkatu 8, Espoo, Finland, 02320
Espoonlahti church was built in 1980, designed by Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen, and enlarged in 1997. Built of concrete and stone quarried from the rock on which it was built, the church looks as if it were a part of the rock. The marine surroundings are very attractive; indeed, the whole entity is beautiful, modern and interesting. Inside, the church is triangular in shape; it gives a collected impression and emphasizes a feeling of togetherness. The direction has been chosen so that the sunlight reaches and comes in through the windows in the high altar wall during the time of the service. Very ingenious and beautiful indeed. The congregation is amongst the largest in Espoo. Services are held on Sundays and religious holidays in Finnish. Many activities are arranged during the week, but schedules vary so call and find out. Buses 150 and 150A will take you there.
