Jan - Feb Services
After prayerful and careful consideration and in consultation with Clergy, medical professionals and lay leadership of the Archdiocese, His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain has decided that all the Churches of the Archdiocese will close for public worship, beginning Saturday, 9 January, 2021, following the same policy enacted during the 1st National Lockdown in March 2020.
This measure is enacted to preserve human life and to help in stopping the spread of Coronavirus.
Only the Clergy, one Chanter, and the Church verger will be allowed in the Church for the Divine Services. At other times, Churches may open for private prayer with the understanding that only one person (or one family bubble) may enter the Church and pray; Church Trustees and Wardens are instructed to adhere to these guidelines without making exceptions.
At the proper time, an announcement will be made, as to when the Churches will open for public worship.
The Divine Liturgy - served every Sunday - can be joined using Zoom. Anyone wishing to join should contact Dr. Salem Murjaneh for each meeting’s link (see the contacts page).
