The Summer Services is an annual event of the Conservative Lestadian revival movement. It is also an international and the largest spiritual event in the Nordic countries. Conservative Lestadianism is one of the revival movements within the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.
The most important aspect at the services are the sermons, which are based on scripture, along with singing together and meeting one another. We want to relate of the secure message of the forgiveness of sins and call people unto repentance. Majority of the service guests will lodge at the service area.
In addition to the sermons, there will be a communion service in the large service tent on Saturday and a worship service and Sunday school on Sunday. Worship services are also held in nearby churches in cooperation with local congregations on Sunday of Summer Services.
All are welcome to the Summer Services. The event is free of charge.
