Lower Harpenden Road
East Hyde

We are an Orthodox church in the Archdiocese of Thyateira under the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The main worship language is Greek; however, as an Orthodox Church, we welcome Orthodox Christians of whatever ethnic background. We serve a geographically scattered congregation stretching from Bedfordshire to Hertfordshire. We are a very diverse community with members from many parts of the world. Depending on the composition of the congregation English, Romanian, Church Slavonic and even Arabic may be also used during services. Children are a very important part of our community and they also enjoy taking part in our services.

We also welcome all visitors to our Divine Liturgy. While Holy Communion may only be received by prepared Orthodox Christians, our non‐Orthodox guests are welcome to join us for receiving blessed bread (antidoron) at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy. After the Divine Liturgy our Community Hall is open for coffee, tea, sandwiches and fellowship.

Whether you are visiting the area or looking for a church community to worship in, we assure you of a warm welcome.
