Join the Disability Ministry Team

We are putting together a team of volunteers to help parents of disabled children, especially during Sunday services. If you are interested in the ministry, or simply want to learn more, please fill out this form!

Get connected at UCC

What does getting connected at UCC this season might look like for you? We have a number of volunteer teams at both congregations; various community events; clubs, gatherings or groups; and seasonal special events as well.

Serving or volunteering during a Sunday worship service or with the youth teams is a great way to get to know people, to get connected, and to grow in sacrificially loving, serving and encouraging each other. 

Please fill out this form to let us know what volunteer teams or church groups / events you are interested in, and a staff member will be in touch soon!

Sunday Services at UCC

We are in a sermon series through 1 Samuel. At UCC we typically teach sermon series on books of the Bible, chapter by chapter. 

We livestream both of our Sunday services. You can always watch the latest service online at our digital bulletin (ucclife.fi/bulletin), where you will also find the Order of Worship for that Sunday.

To catch up on any Sundays you might have missed, check out our sermon archive via this link or from the link at the end of every digital bulletin. 

We also have a playlist on Spotify with all the songs that are sung during the current sermon series – click here to listen in

If you would like to learn about volunteering on any of our Sunday service teams, please contact Daniel Ottoson (for morning service volunteering) or Miriam Brown (for evening service volunteering).

Upcoming UCC Social Events

We have a WhatsApp group chat where we post all our Social events. Events are often also posted on the church website calendar, but the WA group is how you’ll stay most up to date.

Anyone at all can organise a social event – we’d love to have more events! The heart behind our Social team is to organise low-threshold events to which we can invite friends from outside the church, as well as to build our own fellowship and community within UCC. If you would like to host / invite / organise / suggest an event, please contact Miriam or Mark to get info online and into the WhatsApp chat group. 

To join the WhatsApp group, you can fill out this form online, or you can contact Miriam (0407259049) or Mark (+1 717 742 8018) via WhatsApp and ask to be added to the group!

Welcome to a Friday morning pre-work morning coffee in downtown Helsinki usually weekly. There is a seperate whatsapp group for the morning coffee – if you’d like to be added for all the latest details or updates, please contact Miriam!

We meet in the Fazer Café in the Kamppi Shopping Center.

Friday morning coffees are usually from 9-10:30 – join anytime!
