The Lauritsala Church, beautifully known as the “Heavenly Light” was designed by architects Toivo Korhonen and Jaakko Laapotti. The church was completed in 1969, and is in the shape of an equilateral triangle. The concrete roof of the church was constructed using a slipform casting method and it features a large glass roof. Furthermore, the wall behind the altar has vertical windows, all the way to the top of the church. This means that “heavenly light” can enter the church both through the end wall and the skylights.
In 1991, a boat made of deadwood and titled “The Truth” was hoisted to the ceiling of the church, to commemorate the local wood processing industry.
