There is the Finnish Orthodox Church, which has about 20,000 members, and there is also the Russian Orthodox Church, with some 2,400 adherents. The Russian congregation is planning to build a new church, which had caused some stir between the two groups; however, it is said that thanks in part to the efforts of Finnish Archbishop Leo, things are getting better.
