Message from our Community Chairman:

SUPPORT FOR THE CHURCH TO HELP US THROUGH THESE DIFFICULT TIMES

We have recently received several donations towards our Church funds from parishioners and friends for which I would like to express my thanks and gratitude and also those of Father Costantinos and the Ecclesiastical Committee.

During these extraordinary and difficult times our Church is receiving no regular income to meet our fixed costs and outgoings. Therefore, may I respectfully ask those of you who can, either to make a one off donation or, if you prefer to set up a regular standing order.

Of course, please only do so if you feel comfortable about this and do not place yourself or your family in any financial difficulty or risk.

If you would like to think about making a donation, please contact either Father Costantinos or myself for details about how you can support St. Athanasios Church.

With very best wishes to all our parishioners, families and friends from Father Costantinos and the Ecclesiastical Committee of St. Athanasios, Cambridge.

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.
