SUMMER BOOK STUDY at UCC

Every summer we study through a book together at UCC. We typically meet for 4-6 consecutive weeks, depending on the material. This summer we will offer two different meeting options – one in Helsinki on Saturdays, and one in Espoo on Sundays.

Some of our previous books are: “Habits of Grace” by David Matthis, and “12 Ways Your Phone is Changing You” by Tony Reinke.


In the summer of 2021, we will be studying through Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “Life Together”.

We are ordering physical copies of the book which will be available for purchase from the church office, but it is also available online as a digital copy if you want to get a jump start on reading.

UPDATE: Our books are ordered but slightly delayed in arriving. You can still contact miriam@ucclife.fi if you’d like to pre-sign up to buy a copy, and we’ll be in touch about how to get them to you in the coming week or two! On the 3rd of July, the Helsinki meeting will still take place as a meet&greet, for anyone interested.

The book study will take place as an in-person meeting, weather permitting we will meet outdoors, during the first four weekends of July. On Saturdays we will meet in Helsinki in the early evening. On Sundays the Espoo book study group will meet shortly after our Sunday service location in Leppävaara.

Helsinki – 18:00 – Sininen Huvila

Espoo – 12:00 noon – UCC Espoo
