About us

Welcome to our Greek-Orthodox Community website of St Anthony the Great in Newcastle upon Tyne.

The Greek Orthodox Community of St Anthony the Great is a parish under the pastoral care of Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain and the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

Our services are held within the Anglican Church of St John the Baptist, Grainger Street, one of the oldest churches in Newcastle which dates back to the 12th century and it is situated in the heart of Newcastle city centre (click here for a map). 

Our worship is strengthened by the prayers of Christians from different Orthodox backgrounds, including English, Romanian, Russian, German, Bulgarian, Georgian, Polish and other Orthodox Christians. Services are mainly in Greek and English.

Please see the schedule of services for information about times of service.
