Celebrations & Passages
Sunday of St Mary of Egypt (fifth in Lent)
In you, Mother, was preserved unimpaired
That which is according to God's image;
For you took up the Cross and followed Christ,
And by your deeds you have taught us
To despise the flesh, for it passes away,
But to care for the soul
Which is a thing immortal.
And therefore your spirit, holy Mary,
Rejoices with the angels.
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.
