From Vantaa to the world

Our volunteers and workers spread God’s love in different countries on all continents. We also financially support and pray for certain parishes and parish workers abroad. We see ourselves as a part of the worldwide Christian community.

Our workers abroad keep contact to Vantaa parishes and tell us how their work is going. We can support them and their target countries and communities by praying, sharing the Gospel and providing diaconal care and material support as well as creating networks and giving a chance for new international friendships.

Vantaa parishes have sister churches in Estonia, Russia, Namibia, Canada and the USA. Sister church relationships often start from a personal contact or friendship that grows into collaboration between the two parishes. Members of sister communities may visit each other, engage in correspondence or collaborate in many different ways.
