Welcome to St. Andrew’s

Note: Due to the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic, our sacred Archdiocese has decided to close all of its churches for public worship from 9 January 2021 until further notice. All services at the Cathedral will therefore be held behind closed doors. You can follow our services online here. We will open for private devotion (one household at a time) 12.30-2.30pm Mondays-Thursdays, 12.00-2.00pm on Saturdays, and 1.00-2.00pm on Sundays.

We are a church of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain (Œcumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople) serving the Orthodox Christian community of London and beyond.

Whether you wish to join us for a service, learn more about the Christian faith, or are looking for a place for private prayer or quiet reflection, you are most welcome!

Please take some time to explore the resources available on this website.
