Following the relocation of our Parish Community, a temporary space was established as our Church within the eastern wing of the existing building, to serve the spiritual and pastoral needs of our Parish Community.
In June 2014, our Parish board officially appointed Demetrios Stavropoulos of Design Delta: a Nominated Architect in NSW with a significant amount of technical experience in designing Greek Orthodox monasteries and churches in Australia.
Following much prayer and reflection, the Parish board, with His Grace Bishop Seraphim of Apollonias, as well as professional consultants, agreed on a design brief for our new Church: a brief which sought to truly honour our patron Saint, St Ioannis (St John the Baptist & Forerunner) and to glorify God.
In the words of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, in its simplest form, the design brief seeks to reflect:
“… the communion in Grace of the created and uncreated, for the salvation of the created and the glorification of the uncreated.”
We are now in the final stages of the concept plans for the new permanent Greek Orthodox Church of St Ioannis.
These plans will be released shortly.
