Message from Father Constantine

In this 16th year of the Parish we glorify God and we pray God continues to bless us. We realise there is much more work to be done in our Community but with prayer and dedication the future is bright.We continue to rely on your prayers and attendance at the Holy Services and the various activities of the Parish.

If you have friends and family who would like to subscribe to our Newsletter please forward them this email and ask them to simply click on the "Join our Mailing List.

Recently, we have started proceedings to see if it is feasable to build a Primary School in the Parish. Your opinion and possible support would be appreciated. We can rejoice at the “team effort” involved to move ahead as a Parish. It is only your generosity and presence that encourages and strengthens our work.

We would like to acknowledge all the efforts of our Parishioners. We would like to thank our Parish President Dr John Macarounas and all our hard working Committees. We pray God gives them and all of you as Parishioners strength, enlightenment and health for the progress of your families and indeed, the extended family of the Parish.

A big thank you goes to the Church Committee, Ladies Auxiliary, Chanters, Altar boys and our volunteer cleaners and gardeners. To the children and teachers of Scripture, Sunday School, Youth Groups, Play Group, Greek School, Greek Dancing, Scouts and Cubs and so many more people, thank you, and God bless you all in a very special way.

Fr Constantine.

Scripture Teachers
Teaching the word of God is a great blessing for us all. We need parents who are prepared to dedicate an hour a week to teaching our children.

Car Parking
Parishioners are requested to be mindful of neighbours, and respectful of nature strips when parking in and around the church grounds. Those vehicles that are illegally parked will be fined by the local council.
