Church Attendance during Covid-19

The current situation is as follows:

  • Churches can have “1 person per 4sqm up to a maximum of 100 people per separate area”.  At St Ioannis we believe this equates to 80 in our Church plus 100 in our hall 
  • This means that after the 1st 80 persons, those that come later will be directed to  our hall. 
  • In our hall the Liturgy can be heard and seen on a screen
  • Masks are compulsory in Churches
  • You do not need to book to come to our Church Services.
  • We are not  livestreaming our the Services

English Liturgies, Adult Bible Study Group, and Youth Groups

All these initiatives are in English. 

We hold English Divine Liturgies once a month, our next one will be on Wednesday 17 February 2021, 7 – 8.30am

Every Tuesday from February till early December we have a Bible Study class for adults from 7.15 till 8.30pm in the classroom above our hall. (The only exceptions are on weeks when we have an English Liturgy on the Wednesday, and on the Tuesday before and after Pascha). 

We have a Youth Group for boys from Years 8 to 12 on Saturdays 5 – 6.45pm. 

God willing we are hoping to begin “YOKE” next February.  Our vision is a group for young people 18 – 30 years of age that will organise monthly spiritual talks followed by the opportunity to support each other in the faith and socialize over some refreshments.  If you would like to be on a mailing list for this Youth Group please email your name, phone number and preferred email to yokeparra@gmail.com
