COVID PRECAUTIONS from 19th July
The Government has announced that we are free from official restrictions, but that we must be cautious and release the restrictions gradually.
THIS WEEK in the church there are the following changes:
Separate households must keep a distance of ONE metre apart, instead of TWO metres. This allows more people to be in the main church.
Face masks are no longer required to be worn. Those who wish to keep them are welcome to do so.
WE MUST STILL OBSERVE ALL OTHER PRECAUTIONS,
eg: track and trace, follow the arrows, sanitise, wash, not attending church with Covid symptoms or in quarantine
IN THE COMING WEEKS these will be reviewed. Stay safe!
Celebrations & Passages
Dormition of St Anna, the Mother of the Theotokos
O God-minded Anna, you bore the Mother of God,
Who conceived within herself the Conceiver of Life itself,
You were therefore transported to a place in Heaven.
The joyful reside there in the home of all gladness,
And ask forgiveness of those who honour you, O blessed one.
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.
