The Vartiokylä church, completed in 1958, was built in the middle of the Vartioharju single-family housing area. It is one of the oldest multipurpose churches in Finland, with a kitchen, parish meeting hall, gym and club and meeting rooms all under the same roof. The Vartiokylä multipurpose church was an attraction when it was completed in 1958. People came to see it from afar. The church was designed by Pekka Laurila.
