Kemi Church is a Finnish Evangelical Lutheran church of the Diocese of Oulu. The church is located in the centre of the town of Kemi in Northern Finland.

The Gothic Revival building was designed by architect Josef Stenbäck and it was completed in 1902. It is a brick constructed long church with two side ships. The building resonates continental Neo-Gothic influence which is especially displayed on the magnificent round window overlooking the main entrance as well as on the great windows of the altar wall. The gothic influence is also shown on the steeple, smaller spires and gables.

The archways and protruding columns of the church hall resemble those of big European cathedrals. Simple furnishing and frugal decoration are in turn part of the traditional Finnish stone church building.

The building was renovated in 2003.

  • This church is unusual and very beautiful on the outside so is well worth a look. It's a little boring on the inside.

  • We were very disappointed the church was closed. Liked the look of the exterior and thought the graves for the soldiers was very respectful and the gardens very well maintained.
  • Unfortunately, it was closed... I think it can no longer be visited.
