The International Christian Fellowship is a ministry of Hämeenlinna Vapaaseurakunta that began in 2014. We are a group of people from different nations and cultures who are seeking to know and serve God better—the Father, his Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We want to experience God’s presence, show his character in our lives, and bring honor to Him. We look to the Bible— God’s ancient but ever-new Word— to teach us who He is and how to live and serve Him here and now.
We believe that first in the history of Israel, then most decisively in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and now through the work of the church in every place, God is healing and renewing our world. He is building his multicultural kingdom of love, truth, justice, mercy, beauty, joy, hope and peace, and we want to be partners with him in this. We don’t claim we have all of the answers; we don’t all think exactly alike; we haven’t arrived! All of us are on a spiritual journey towards this God, and each of us is in a different place on the path. We welcome all who want to join us in the journey!

We gather on a weekly basis at 12:30pm on Sundays to worship God together at the Hämeenlinna Vapaaseurakunta, Sibeliuksenkatu 17. We do this through singing worship songs, studying the bible, hearing testimonies from each others lives, as well as sharing with one another over a cup of tea or coffee. We also have Sunday school classes for 3-6 year olds and for 1st-6th graders. Children begin in the service with their parents and go to their classes as a group just before the sermon begins. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ or just curious to find out more, welcome!
On Wednesday evenings at 8pm-10pm there is a group that plays futsal (indoor football) at Jukola School together with students and others from the local community. All aged 15+ are welcome to come and join us for a game. The address is Liivuorentie 24, Hämeenlinna.
On Friday evenings at 6pm-8pm we play active games and sports, as well as hang out together and catch up on each other’s week. This is open to all ages and is a great chance to have fun together in a relaxed atmosphere. This takes place at Lyseo School sports hall, Birger Jaarlin katu 6.
All activities are subject to the current Coronavirus related restrictions in Hämeenlinna. Please contact Pastor David (see contact details below) to check if a gathering is currently taking place.

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
