Join Us This Week
We have several ways to stay connected as a community here at Saalem English Church. From our regular Sunday gatherings to online meeting spaces, you are welcome to join us. You'll always find a welcoming atmosphere and opportunities to explore the Christian faith or grow in your relationship with God and others.
Saalem English Church is a community within the larger Saalem church family. We worship together with the Finnish service on Sundays at 11:00AM and provide English translation via an app on your smartphone. More info about translation can be found here.
Whether you are a student or international visitor, we welcome you to worship with us!
We have regular opportunities to get connected with others in a small group setting. We believe that life change happens in community. It may be a little intimidating at first, but being part of a small group helps us grow in ways we could never experience by ourselves.
Listen to their Experience
From university students to married couples, here are a few personal stories from our Saalem English community and how God is making a difference in their lives.
I spent 5 years in Finland. I am an ex-football player, having passed through 17 different countries with many tears, brokenness, bitterness and frustration in my career and family.
I remember my first day at Saalem. I felt the presence of the Lord, as if he hugged me and said “Welcome Home!”. I felt loved. I am thankful to God for granting me the opportunity to be a part of the Saalem family. Beautiful people with a sincere love for God and for people.
I spent a year in Helsinki as an exchange student and Saalem Church has become a family for me. I got involved with the international students work as well as women's team and also had an amazing opportunity to serve on a mission trip in Africa. I loved our planning and praying meetings and the fun we shared together. Without Saalem, I wouldn't have met such a wonderful people that have impacted me and are going to be a great part of my life forever.
