St. Martin’s Church
The church in Türi, dedicated to St.Martin, is a three-nave church built in 13th century. Apart from limestone and boulders, which are more common to Northern Estonia, also bricks have been used, which is more typical to Southern Estonia. Glass paintings on windows by Dolores Hoffmann, dating from 1990-1997, are a marvellous addition to the interior. On top of the spire there is a colourful rooster, unique in Estonia. An exciting story is connected to the baroque altar made by Christian Ackermann in 1693. In 1990 altar paintings „Calvary“ and „The Last Supper“ by A.G.Pezold, an artist of Baltic German origin, were stolen. Due to that, original altar paintings on wooden panels appeared. The stolen paintings were mysteriously brought back to the congregation in January 1998. Good accoustics, the renovated organ and heated floor make the church a popular place for concerts. In 2010 a new digital bell was installed and now with just a push on the button, either wedding or funeral bells start ringing. The new bell also rings at every hour from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
There is a service at 11 on Sundays.
