An Evangelical Lutheran church, completed in 2005, it is the newest of the city’s church buildings. The church design by JKMM Architects, is based on the winning entry to an architectural competition for the Latokartano center in Viikki, organised in 2000.

The church is wooden, the floors, ceiling, walls and pillars are made of spruce and the outer cladding and double shingling are aspen. Furnishings are made of oak and aspen. Inside the church, dense clustered structural beams are left exposed making architecture without decoration. This evokes the atmosphere of a Finnish forest.
