Co-Christian Friendship & Gospel training weekend – free for you.

You can follow teaching in Zoom or on-site at the base or in any other place where you want to meet as a team.

  • The base on Espoo weekend is Uuttu Chapel (Lintukulma 2, Espoo) on Friday and Leppävaaran Lähetyskappeli (Pentecostal Church, Vallikallionkuja 1, Espoo) on Saturday and Sunday – the both places in Leppävaara

  • The base on Helsinki weekend is Malmi Saalem Church (Malmin asematie 3, Helsinki)
  • We also organize other places where, for example, 1-4 teams can come together to follow the teaching

  • In addition, we meet our friends and acquaintances through video calls, in homes and cafes across the Helsinki metropolitan area, and if desired, strangers on the streets


In October and November, from which you can choose the time you like or join both weekends. See the Helsinki weekend schedule below and the Espoo weekend schedule here.


Real learning happens in practice – safely together.

  • In on-the-job-training / hands-on practice, you are led by an XEE-trained teamleader in a 3-person team

  • You don’t have to know anything, you can just come along casually

  • The link to register is below

For whom? 

Every Christian from different churches – church members as well as church leaders.

  • If you have hardly told about faith to non-believers, or it’s a long time since the last witnessing, you can start it safely now

  • If you are a more experienced witness, you learn new ideas and effective concepts for sure – Moreover, you learn how to equip others

  • If you are a leader, you get in touch with a highly practical and mobilizing evangelism and disciple-making tool
  • You can take part in weekends no matter where you live


The task given by Jesus to tell about Him and to make disciples belongs to each of us.

  • Get up for the most important task and sign up!

* The OJT is a hands-on practice that may be a video call, a meeting at home or in a cafe or encounters on the street. If possible, the three-person teams will be made so that people in a team are from the same area. So OJT’s can be done locally in different parts of the Helsinki metropolitan area. If you want, your team may follow the Zoom teaching in the same place together and go for OJT’s from there. Or each team member may follow the teaching in their own home, after which the OJT can be a video call or the team can meet in an agreed place and go for the OJT.


Encourage yourself and join one or more of the weekends! It’s safe and great learning!
