IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE 31/1/2021

To all our valued community members,

 

I wanted to write to you all to give you an update as to the closure of our church due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.

 

We have been once again advised and issued directives from the Archdiocese that the Church is to remain CLOSED until the end of February 2021. There will be another review at that time to evaluate the safety of our congregation returning to church.

 

These decisions are made with a heavy heart however the safety of everyone in our community is our priority. We will continue to live stream Sunday services. If you have a memorial or celebrate a feast day during this month please get in contact via email or telephone and we will ensure that the names are read and blessed.

If you would like to support us during this prolonged closure we would be very grateful: https://paypal.me/pools/c/8qGZ1hBdTM

 

We hope you are all keeping safe and well and we hope to return back to communal worship as soon as it is safe to do so. 

 

Many thanks and kind regards

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE 12/1/2021

Dear all valued community members,

 

I am writing to inform you all that our church will remain CLOSED until the end of the month. With the health and safety in mind of all our community we have made the difficult decision to close the church, as the numbers of positive cases are increasing very rapidly in the area we want to take every precaution to protect our community. 

 

I will email again with any further updates and information when we are going to open. 

 

Kind Regards

Αγαπητά και πολύτιμα μέλη της κοινότητας μας,

Γράφω για να ενημερώσω ότι η εκκλησία μας θα παραμείνει ΚΛΕΙΣΤΗ μέχρι το τέλος του μήνα. Έχοντας κατά νου την υγεία και την ασφάλεια όλων των μελών της κοινότητας μας. Έχουμε πάρει τη δύσκολη απόφαση να κλείσουμε την εκκλησία, καθώς ο αριθμός των θετικών περιπτώσεων του COVID – 19 αυξάνεται πολύ γρήγορα στην ενορία μας. Θέλουμε να λάβουμε όλα τα μέτρα για την προφύλαξη της κοινότητας μας.

Θα στείλω ξανά email με περαιτέρω ενημερώσεις και πληροφορίες όταν πρόκειται να επανέλθουμε.

Με σεβασμό και ευχές


Σοφία Μάρκου

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE 28/12/2020 

Αδελφοι αγαπημενοι,

Χρονια πολλα κι ευλογημενα!

Η Χαρη του Ενανθρωπησαντος Χριστου να σκεπαζη την Κοινοτητα μας,την Ιερα Αρχιεπισκοπη,την Ομογενεια,τη Μητερα Μεγαλη Εκκλησια κι ολοκληρη την καθημαγμένη απο την πανδημια ανθρωποτητα.

Με πολυ πονο ,αλλα,και συναισθηση της αποφασεως μας,επιθυμω να σας ενημερωσω οτι,η Εκκλησια μας,για λογους υγειονομικης ασφαλειας και απολυμανσης,θα παραμεινει κλειστη εως και τις 9 Ιανουαριου 2021!!!

Αντιλαμβάνεστε πως οι Θειες Λειτουργιες της 1ης,3ης,5ης,6ης( Θεοφανειων),7ης και 9ης του μηνος θα τελεσθουν, πρωτα ο Θεος, κεκλεισμενων των θυρων και θα αναμεταδιδονται απο το διαδικτυακο μας καναλι. Δυστυχως, καποια θετικα περιστατικα που αργησαν να μας ενημερωσουν, μας αναγκαζουν να προβούμε σ`αυτην την κινηση, για να προστατεύσουμε το συνολο των ενοριτων, μιας και η κοινωνικη μας ευθυνη υπερβαινει και αυτην την προστασια του ιδιου μας του εαυτου.

Παρακαλω, οσοι διαβαζετε την ενημερωση,να την κοινοποιήσετε και σε αλλους,ωστε να αποφευχθουν τυχον παρεξηγησεις.

Ειθε ο Σαρκωθεις Κυριος να απομακρυνη οποιαδηποτε δυσαρεστη εκπληξη και εξελιξη, και,με την πολυποθητη υγεια,να επιστρέψουμε στην κοινη μας Λατρεια.

Ευχομενος περαστικα στους νοσουντες,προσεύχομαι για ολους και για την πλεον ομαλη εισοδο μας στον καινουργιο χρονο.

Για τις οποιες αλλαγες,θα ενημερώνεστε απο τη σελιδα μας εδω και την ιστοσελιδα της Κοινοτητας.

Dear all,

A blessed and Merry Christmas!

The Grace of the Incarnate Christ to protect our Community, the Holy Archdiocese, the Greek Diaspora, the Great Mother Church and the whole of humanity plagued by the pandemic.

It is with a heavy heart, but with a big responsibility to our community, I would like to inform you that our Church, for reasons of health and safety and disinfection, will remain closed until January 9th, 2021 !!!

The Divine Liturgies of the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th (Epiphany), 7th and 9th of the month will be performed, first by God, but behind closed doors and will be rebroadcast from our web channel. Unfortunately, with some positive cases in the community and with a lack of communication and information on their behalf, we have been forced to make this move, in order to protect all the parishioners, since our social responsibility goes beyond the protection of ourselves.

Please, those who read the update, share it with others, in order to avoid any misunderstandings.

May the Incarnate Lord remove any more risks and development, and, with the coveted health, we will return to our communal Worship.

Wishing all the best to the sick, I pray for everyone and for our now smooth entry into the new year.

For any changes, you will be informed from our page here and the Community website.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE 24/12/2020

Dear All,

I am writing to inform you that today we received information that we have had 3 members of our community test positive for COVID-19. We can confirm that they have NOT been to church in the last two weeks which reduces the possible risk to other congregation members. 

Along with both the guidance from the Government and the Archdiocese the church will remain open HOWEVER we strongly advise that anyone elderly, vulnerable or living with anyone who is either of these, does not attend the church until further notice. Unfortunately, the numbers of people contracting COVID in and around the area of the church is rising and we do not want anyone from our community to put themselves at any unnecessary risk. 

We will be live streaming as many services as we can, so please subscribe to our YouTube channel to have direct access to all of these.

If anyone has any concerns please reply back to this email and I will do my best to reassure you. We have taken all the correct steps to ensure the safety of our community and its members.

Many Thanks
