The Finnish parish is together with the German parish the oldest non Swedish congregations in Stockholm. During the reformation when the Latin was abolished in the churches the Finnish speaking people living in Stockholm wanted to use their language and not the Swedish language. This was approved in 1533.
Between 1533 and 1725 they Finnish speaking people in Stockholm didn't have a church of their own and shared facilites with the German parish and even with the parish of Stockholm Cathedral. In 1725 they were given the building "the small Bollhus" by the King Fredrik I to use as their own church and they named it after him in gratitude, the Fredrik Church.
At December 19:th 1725 the Finnish church in Stockholm was inaugurated after the rebuilding and design by the architect Göran Adelcrantz. The Church Hall is approx. 200 square meters and there is space for 400 visitors.
