Church service changes due to Coronavirus

UPDATED 31 MAY 2020

Due to the current restrictions set by the government (until now), the church services will be conducted with a limited number of congregants inside the church and will be available to the wider congregation using online channels (live streaming and Zoom meetings).


Attending Holy Liturgies inside church

To physically attend a liturgy at church please follow the instructions here. We are not allowed to have more than 50 congregation members, therefore liturgies will continue to be live-streamed for those who cannot attend.


Live streaming Holy Liturgies

Liturgies will be prayed daily and live-streamed on the church homepage and YouTube channel (with the exception of Sundays, where English liturgy will be live-streamed to Facebook).

  • Sunday
