One of many things that we treasure in our cluster of 3 Anglican churches in Paphos district is the variety of types and styles of Christian worship services. They range from formal Holy Communion services, some with accompanying choir, to the occasional Sung Evensong and “Songs of Praise” events, and Morning Worship services with hymns, prayers and a sermon.
In newer buildings altered to suit a contemporary congregation, a converted taverna in Tala serves the needs of the vibrant community of St Stephen’s. Similarly, St Luke’s in Prodromi between Latchi and Polis has grown over the years and is a friendly and inviting community in a beautiful part of Cyprus. The historic Orthodox Church of Ayia Kyriaki (St Paul’s Pillar) in the heart of ancient Paphos offers a powerful sense of being on ground used for worship through all the conquests and changes that this island has lived through.
All of our services will be recognisable to those who are Anglican from any part of the world, including Church of England / Church in Wales / Episcopal Church of Scotland and the Church of Ireland, from which the majority of our members come. Others are from Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal or Baptist backgrounds, and from Anglican churches in places as diverse as the Philippines, USA, South Africa and the UAE.
There is much diversity in our membership, in our visitors and in the ways we are drawn to worship God. All are welcome! This includes people on holiday and “swallows” who come to Cyprus for periods of time.
Our website has information about service times, pastoral care, funerals (available to all), bereavement support, and social activities. Our wedding website will tell you about Weddings, Renewal of Vows services and marriage blessings that can be conducted in several church and other local venues.
Service times and news of regular and special events are listed each week in our newsheet which you can download from this website.
Within the diocese, we are linked with the Church of the Epiphany in Doha, Qatar.
