Who we are

Vantaa Parish Union is a group of seven parishes covering the whole of Vantaa. In the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland your parish membership is almost always determined by where you live. You are most welcome to visit any church or talk to any priest, but especially in diaconal matters you should contact your local parish first, whether or not you are a member.
