Earlier this year we were blessed to be visited by Father Themi Adamopoulos, who is a missionary in Sierra Leone, in West Africa. We hope to do some fund raising for Fr Themi’s work with our Summer Greek Festival.
Here is the video of his visit:

This is a summary for Holy Week and the First Day of Pascha. For the Full Programme of services throughout April – please download the pdf documents from the website
When visiting the Church, especially for Holy Communion on Thursday of Holy Week, but also for the busy evening services, please be mindful of local residents. We need to give a good Christian example in these Holy Days.
PLEASE BE AWARE:
There are many new parking restrictions in the area around the Church, therefore we highly recommend parking at one of the many secure public car parks in Edmonton Green and taking the short walk down to the Church if you are able. Please do not park across people’s drives, and be wary of any parking restrictions that are in force. Could we especially urge you NOT to park in disabled bays unless you are entitled to (After all you are coming to Church, so of course you don’t want to break the law or be inconsiderate to disabled people).
The 192 bus stops right outside and runs from behind Edmonton Green. Your car will probably be safer too.
Thank you for your understanding.
On the first Friday of every month there is a monthly gathering in our parish. We start with a few evening prayers in the Church, followed by some warming homemade soup and a chance to meet others and chat. After this Father John usually gives a topical talk about living the Orthodox Faith, with an opportunity to ask questions and participate in a friendly discussion.
All welcome! Come along to any part of the evening that you can!
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord”
The supermarkets are already full of Christmas lights, tacky tinsel, fat Father Christmases, and red nosed reindeer, but where can you get cards, gifts and presents that reflect the real reason for the season?
Help put the Christ back into Christmas. Tell your friends what it is really about with an Orthodox icon card available from our shop.
Lots of Orthodox Christmas cards and gifts are available in our bookshop – open after every major service.
For further information regarding this or other products from our Gift and Book Shop please contact Fr. Evangelos.
All monies raised through our Gift and Book Shop go towards the upkeep of our church, so your custom is warmly appreciated.
