Celebrations & Passages
Sunday of the Last Judgement (Meatfare Sunday)
Kontakion (Tone 1)
When you come upon the earth, O God, in glory,
And the whole universe trembles,
While the river of fire flows before the seat of judgement,
And books are opened and all secrets are disclosed:
Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire,
And count me worthy to stand at your right hand,
O Judge most just!
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.
