About our Parish
Our Congregation Today
Our church community are a group of Orthodox Christians located in Brisbane, Australia, who strive to follow Christ in the Church that He founded. At present, we are the only Orthodox Christian parish in Brisbane dedicated to the worship of God in the English language.
Each weekend, we typically welcome ~75 people to at least one of our regular services. Our parishioners are from all over the world, with birthplaces spanning from Australia and New Zealand, to Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, South Africa, South America, and beyond. Some of our parishioners have been Orthodox before they could walk, while the majority of our adult parishioners chose to be Orthodox later in life. All are united by our common faith, and we have a friendly, welcoming atmosphere where it is the norm to seek, find and follow Truth.
We welcome any to join us, and to experience the Church that Christ founded. [Our Services & Events]
First Time Visitor Information
If this is your first time visiting our church, we encourage you to view our Visitor Information Page.
Please note: as renovations of our church are underway, our services are being held in two different venues in Woolloongabba. We anticipate that this will include all of Winter and Spring 2023, and we pray that during Summer 2023/24 we will return. See our services page for location details.
Our Parish Feastday: The Annunciation of the Theotokos
Our parish is dedicated to the Holy Annunciation, one of the major feastdays of our Church calendar. We sing how it is the ‘beginning of our salvation’ – because the story of the salvation of humanity by Jesus Christ begins with His conception, when He took human flesh. You can read more about it on OrthodoxWiki.
