A great disappointment. I've selected this church as the only visit during my business trip to Helsinki. What a waste of time. Just a church in the rocks.

Fair question! Official Helsinki web page gives following answer: "Closed during church ceremonies and events." I would recommend to contact tourist office to get detailed information. Good luck
