Who We Are
A community of over two thousand Orthodox Christians in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia.
Our church is located in Rose Bay, nestled between Sydney Harbour and Bondi Beach.
We come under the pastoral care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, headed by Archbishop Makarios, under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
The Greek word for church is ekklesia. It signifies the gathering of a group of people responding to a call or invitation to attend an event of common good.
In my journey around the parish to bless everyone’s home, I have in the last two weeks, knocked on over three hundred doors.
