About our Parish


Our Congregation Today

Our church community is 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 where all services are in the English language.


Each weekend, we typically welcome ~90 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, creating 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]

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 ‚Äėbeginning of our salvation‚Äô ‚Äď 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.

Founded in 1972, our parish made history in the mid-1980s by being the first Orthodox parish in Australia to have all services in the English language.  You can read more on our Parish History page.
