About the Community
The Greek Orthodox Community of St. Athanasios Cambridge was established in 1968 by the late Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain Gregorios, who was at the time the community's priest. The community is a registered charity and governed by the Board of Trustees. The Community's purpose is to serve the religious, educational and social needs of people of Greek and Greek Cypriot origin living in Cambridge and the surrounding areas.
The main Committee has the overall responsibility for operational and financial issues, while the Committee of the Greek School of St. Athanasios (the community's school) is primarily responsible for the running of the school. The Ladies' Committee, St Elena is involved with charitable activities.
The Community is based at its own freehold property at 154 Cherry Hinton Road, CAMBRIDGE CB1 7AJ.
The Church of St. Athanasios operates under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain, Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
The schedule of church services is regularly updated. The main language is Greek while effort is made for sermons and some readings to be delivered in English as well. Many of the services are streamed live via our Facebook page.
To become a member of the Greek Orthodox Community of St. Athanasios Cambridge please pick up a membership form at the Church or contact the Community's Chairman.
