The altarpiece, painted by Artist Väinö Saikko, is called “Crucified” and dates from 1939. In the same year, the interior paintings and etched windows were completed by Antti Salmenlinna.
The baptismal font, made of Ylämaa spectrolite gemstone and donated to the parish in 1975, is a unique creation. The rug used at weddings was donated in 1980.
