Religious Denominations

There has been a complete freedom of religion in Finland since 1923. Everyone is therefore entitled to practise their own religion and to express their beliefs as long as they don't violate the fundamental human rights or break the law. Finns are not particularly active church-goers even though most of them belong to the church. Most Finns observe the Christian faith, belonging to either the Evangelical Lutheran (78%) or the Orthodox Church (1%).

There is also a prayer room for on the Kuopio Campus. The room is locked so you will need a key to access the room. You can apply for a key to the prayer room from the Office of Facilities Management located in the Snellmania building, ground floor, Ms. Anne Sulkakoski, Room 1078/5.

You can find out more about the activities of the parishes/congragations/groups by contacting them directly.
