Ihmistä varten

Welcome to Tampere United Methodist Church


Tampere United Methodist Church is a vivid and warm church in the city centre of Tampere. We are here by the grace of God and exist for people just like you. Come and visit us! We provide interpretation into English at all our Sunday evening services, every Sunday at 5 p.m.

We are a revivalist and well­known independent Christian church which is part of the nationwide Finnish United Methodist Church. Globally, we belong to the worldwide United Methodist Church. The global UMC has over 12 million members, and it is currently growing strongly in Africa and Asia.

Our church is situated at a peaceful location in the city centre near the Tammerkoski rapids, at the street address Lapintie 4. The entrance is from the short crossing street Palokunnankatu, next to the central fire station. The church has been blessing our city with its operation since 1895. Particularly in the past few years we have been growing by the grace of God. The amount of members has more than doubled in the past seven years. We have over 150 members at the moment.

Please check out this new Presentation video of our church.
