Mission for Unity - Finland


Located in Northern Europe. Finland is one of the world’s most northern and geographically remote countries and is subject to a severe climate. Nearly two-thirds of Finland is blanketed by thick woodlands, making it the most densely forested country in Europe. Finland also forms a symbolic northern border between Western and Eastern Europe: dense wilderness and Russia to the east, the Gulf of Bothnia and Sweden to the west. 


A part of Sweden from the 12th century until 1809, Finland was then a Russian grand duchy until, following the Russian Revolution, the Finns declared independence on December 6, 1917. Finland’s area decreased by about one-tenth during the 1940s, when it ceded the Petsamo (Pechenga) area, which had been a corridor to the ice-free Arctic coast, and a large part of southeastern Karelia to the Soviet Union (ceded portions now in Russia).


Christianity had entered Finland from both the west and the east by the 13th century.

Finland is now one of the most homogeneous countries in Europe in terms of Christianity and has the highest percentage of church membership in Scandinavia. The great majority of the people belong to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland, whose status gradually changed from an official state church to a national church beginning in the 19th century. The archbishop has his see at Turku (Åbo). Yet, despite the high proportion of church membership, only a few Finns attend church regularly. Nonetheless, the majority of the people are still baptized, married, and buried with the blessing of the Lutheran church.

 Our vision for Finland: However, the mean population is Christian,

A lot of people don't  share openly the gospel.        

We like to equip a team of local people of different church denominations

to have:


• Mutual fellowship among Churches 
• Coffee fellowship 
• Friendship evangelism 
• Worship in different languages 
• Women fellowship through activities


We like to start fellowship groups where Christians of a different church background can come together to praise and worship, pray and eat together.


And to open a House of Unity where youth of different churches can meet each other, pray and eat together, and have bible study together. The house of unity will be also a place for training and seminars.

for church leaders. 

And a place where people walk in for a coffee and eat a little snack or need just a person who listen our need help.


  For future 
•Equipping local pastors and Social workers 
• Youth fellowship
