Welcome to the Parish of Saint Makarios the Great!

Please take time to look around our parish website. Here you will find useful information about our church. Press on the appropriate tabs to explore:

Where to find us (Address/Contact), news and events (News), our worship programme (Calendar), the word of the week and a short note about Sunday Gospel(Words), history of the parish and some details about our priest and Parish Council (Parish), a section exploring our Orthodox faith and teachings (Catechesis) and finally, a page that explains the foundation that has been established in order to buy our new church building in Farnley (Charity).

The Parish page also contains an interesting history of our parish and some of the significant events in the life of our community including photographs. The Charity page describes the process of establishing a foundation with charitable status in order to assist in purchasing our own church in Farnley. It will also detail plans for the church's future support and maintenance. The page for Catechesis will be an introduction to the sacraments and ceremonies of the Orthodox Church and what to expect if it is your first visit and catechetical resources.

Other details about our parish can be found in the Brochure edited by the Parish Council.
