We would be grateful if you can bring food in tins or packets, or food vouchers, to the entrance of our hall  on Wednesday 8 April between 2 and 7pm- it will be used by GWC Community Services (Greek Welfare) to feed the poor

With pain of soul, but at the same time with a sense of responsibility for our fellow man, we are letting you know that all Church Services of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia will be held behind closed doors and only with the Priest and the Priest’s helpers.  This will continue until the coronavirus crisis improves. The official encyclical of our Archbishop can be seen on


All the services that are mentioned on this website under “Church Services >  April” will be live-streamed.  You can watch and listen to these at 

(You do not have to join Facebook to access our live-streamed services.  On the St Ioannis Facebook page you scroll down till you get to the Service and then you click the arrow to play.  Of course, be careful not to exceed your allowed data usage).

Of course your Priest continues to be available for your needs, he can be contacted on 0418 298 197.

During these difficult times it is important to be reading  the New Testament and spiritual books.  Some of you may also like to make use of some digital resources. There are many good Orthodox resources, for example: Very spiritual podcasts, the series “Journey to Pascha” is particularly current. If you want to follow a particular Church Service, you go to this site, then go to the date of the Service you want to follow, then click the Greek/English version of the actual service.  You can also download this site as a free app on your phone or i-pad.  From the App Store of your device you search for “Digital Chant Stand”.  On this site you can order Orthodox Christian books on-line
