The appearance is red brick, much like most of the Finlayson factory buildings. Although quite plain it is pleasing to look at although nothing special inside. The church is keen to welcome children and there are displays and activities for children. It is well worth picking up the free leaflet which is available in several languages. There were young people playing music in the church when I visited, which is apparently quite common and adds to the visit. Call in if you are passing.

The Finlayson Church was built in 1871 for the workers of the Finlayson company, then on the rise as one of Scandinavia's biggest companies.

It is a red-brick building with the plain but sturdy look of a Finnish warehouse. Inside it has beautiful exposed timber beams which give it considerable rustic appeal, as if it were from a village rather than a large city. It is also noted for its frequent musical performances. It was filled by the sound of piano music when we visited. Overall, just worth a quick look for travellers.

Quiet and calm place to be. Stayed in tampere for 3.5 years and I loved the calming environment of this church. Was surprised to hear some soothing music. Calms your nerves!

This small church is popular as a wedding Place which is easy to understand due to its location and beauty. Originally it is built for Finlanyseon Factory workers.
