Vuosaari Church

Satamasaarentie 7, 00980 Helsinki

The Vuosaari church, completed in 1980, stands on a wooded hillock by Satamasaarentie. Nature and its seasons become an integral part of the church hall through the large west-facing windows. According to a medieval tradition, the Gospel can also be read from pictures: the concrete relief on the altar wall shows episodes from the life of Jesus. Connected to the church is also the Marielund chapel, dedicated in 2006. The Vuosaari church and the extension work carried out in 2006 were designed by the architectural practice Pirkko and Arvi Ilonen.
