Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

For services for 2nd Week after Pascha please follow the link to our Calendar page.

Thank you to all those who made such an enormous effort to help over Holy Week and Pascha! Thank you to those gave offerings, to those who cared for the beauty of the church, for those who chanted, and for those who laboured in many other ways and to all those who came to share in the joy of the services and feasts and patiently complied with the difficult COVID-19 measures.

Archbishop’s Visit

With great joy we announce that His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain will be making his first pastoral visit to our community on 4 July. He will be with us for Vespers on 3 July and the Divine Liturgy on 4 July.

By that time we hope that COVID-19 restrictions will have eased so that we can all share in the joy of his visit together as a community.


On Renewal Monday Fodoulla Vanezi and Ben Addinell were married!

“O God, our God, Who was present in Cana of Galilee and blessed the marriage there, do You also bless these Your servants, who by Your providence, are joined in the community of marriage. Bless their comings-in and their goings-out. Replenish their life with all good things. Accept their crowns in Your Kingdom unsoiled and undefiled, and preserve them without offense to the ages of ages.” (a prayer from the service of Holy Matrimony)

!!! Congratulations !!!

Catechism Classes

There are many new people attending the church. Some have expressed an interest in learning more about the Orthodox Faith. Therefore Catechism classes will be commencing in the period between now and Holy Pentecost.

The times and days of the classes will be scheduled in the Calendar after this weekend once we have had an opportunity to discuss which days suit.  All are welcome to attend.  Catechumens must attend as part of their preparation to be received into the Church.
