The current church of the Messukylä parish was built in record time in 1879. Until then, the locals had very nearly put their life at risk attending services at the thoroughly dilapidated old church. The red brick church represents the Gothic Revival style typical of its time. The inauguration ceremony was held even though all the necessary fixtures had not yet been acquired. The church received its altarpiece, painted by Alexandra Såltin, nine years later and the organ in 1889.

The architecture of Alexander Church most closely resembles the neo-Gothic style, with influences from other styles. It was named after Russian Emperor Alexander II because the foundation stone was laid on the day of his 25th anniversary in power, 2 March 1880. It was consecrated during Advent in 1881. Alexander Church became the main church of the Tampere parish when the construction work was completed in 1881, which had been the second basic condition for the independence of the parish.

The Old Church of Messukylä is the oldest building in Tampere. It was most likely constructed in the 16th century. Before the stone church dedicated to St Michael, a wooden church stood in its place for a period that is believed to have been slightly less than a century. The Old Church of Messukylä represents the typical style of Finnish churches from the Middle Ages. The decorations around the sacristy are similar to those of other churches of the era located in the Satakunta region.
