Vaarala Chapel is a former church building of hakunila parish located in the Vaarala district of Vantaa. It was designed by architects Leena and Kalle Niukkanen. The church was completed in 1960. In 1995, it received a demolition order from the church council, but less than a decade later the demolition verdict was cancelled and it was decided to preserve the church, which represents modern architecture. The congregation abandoned the church due to the need for its renovation in 2013. After the church was transferred to a private owner, its name was changed to Vaarala Chapel at the seller's request.
