Welcome to St. Andrew’s

Note: The Archdiocese has now re-opened its churches for public worship (click here to read the announcement), and we have returned to our normal opening hours. Please be aware that social distancing regulations mean that we are operating with limited capacity, and we will have to close the doors to the church once the maximum number is reached. We continue to stream our services online.

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.
