Unique Rock Church, Helsinki




 One of the most unique modern churches that I have visited is the incredible

Temppeliaukio Church also called the Rock Church in Helsinki, Finland.



This church was built by brothers Timo and Tuomo and opened in 1969.

The Church was built out of a solid rock outcrop.



The Church has an extraordinary, ethereal, dome made of gleaming copper wire, and concrete beams with glass in an amazing design.




 The rough walls of raw rock gleaming in the light of the flickering candles, the unadorned altar, the birch wood benches and the golden sunbeams streaming in like a thousand dancing elves entranced me.


The church is a favoured place for concerts because of its excellent acoustics due to the rough, rock surfaces.



This unique church has no bells- just recorded chimes played on loudspeakersJ
 Usually,English-language worship services are conducted every Sunday at 2pm.
