Celebrations & Passages
St Andrew, the First-called of the Apostles
As the first-called of the Apostles
And full brother of their prince,
Andrew, implore the Master of all things
To give peace to the whole inhabited world
And to our souls great mercy!
We are an Orthodox church in the Archdiocese of Thyateira under the Ecumenical patriarchate. The parish was established in the year 2000, when the late Archbishop Gregorios visited and gave his blessing for us to negotiate the purchase of the church building and the former vicarage from the Anglican Church. The main services are in English and we use the traditional byzantine chant. As an Orthodox Church, we welcome Orthodox Christians of whatever background. We celebrate weddings, baptisms, funerals, house blessings and other prayers and services in whatever language is most suitable for the families and communities concerned.: English, Greek, Romanian, Slavonic.
NOTES ON SERVICES
The church is closed for Lockdown 2 from 5th November to 2nd December 2020 or until further notice. The box above shows some of the hymns prescribed for this period by the Church, which we would normally sing in our church services and which we will use in the Zoom meetings which replace them.
