New Orthodox Church in Kenton takes shape

25 years ago the Anglican parish of Kenton took the bold step of entrusting its mission Church of the Holy Spirit to the growing community of Greek Orthodox in northwest London. So was born the Archdiocese of Thyateira's parish church of St Pantaleimon the Healer. In time the community was able to purchase the freehold of the Church, the hall and the house. And two years ago, the old building was demolished to make way for a superb new Byzantine church. The roof is now tiled and the copper is on the domes. See more progress and a video of the inside work so far on the parish's blog of the building work, appropriately named Landmark.

The long-serving parish priest is the learned Very Reverend Oeconomos Protopresbyter Anastasios Salapatas. We promise our prayers and warmly wish Father Anastasios well in his mission towards the beautiful and inspiring building of a new Church on a busy main road in north west London, where it will be a constant witness to Christ in a very religiously diverse part of the world.
