Long Description:
[FIN] Ahlaisten kirkko on Ahlaisissa, Porissa sijaitseva puukirkko. Se on Porin nykyisistä kirkoista vanhin. Salomon Köhlström rakensi kirkon kaksilaivaisena. Kirkko valmistui vuonna 1796. Vuonna 1832 valmistui kirkosta erillään oleva kellotapuli, jonka suunnitteli Carl Ludvig Engel. Vuonna 1908 kirkko muunnettiin 720 henkilöä vetäväksi ristikirkoksi arkkitehti Josef Stenbäckin johdolla.

Kirkon alttaritaulu esittää Jeesusta siunaamassa lapsia. Se on vuodelta 1888, ja sen on maalannut Elin Danielson-Gambogi. Neljää evankelistaa kuvaavan kirkon renessanssi-henkisen saarnastuolin on puolestaan suunnitellut kirkon rakentaja Köykkä-Köhlström. Kirkossa on myös 17-äänikertaiset urut, jotka sinne asennettiin vuonna 1909.
