ST PAUL’S ANGLICAN CHURCH ATHENS DIOCESE IN EUROPE Everything We Touch – A Mothers’ Union Service for Mothering Sunday


Welcome to this service for Mothering Sunday, a celebration, not only to thank God for all Mothers but to thank and recognise all those who nurture us through our lives, including God.

The work of the Mothers’ Union around the world is about nurturing individuals, groups and communities by enabling them to improve their quality of life and providing opportunities for communication and reconciliation within families. The MU facilitates a network of parenting groups, provides a range of support for families and produces resources on issues important to adults and children.

Leader: ‘As truly as God is our Father, so truly is God our Mother, and he revealed that in everything, and especially in these sweet words where he says: I am he; that is to say: I am he, the power and goodness of fatherhood; I am he, the wisdom and the lovingness of motherhood; I am he, the light and grace which is all blessed love; I am he, the Trinity …’ (The Showings, Long Text, Mother Julian of Norwich, 14th century)

St. Paul’s Anglican Church response to the Coronavirus

St. Paul’s Anglican Church response to the Coronavirus

At public worship:

  • Sanitize hands on entering and leaving the building
  • Do not shake hands or do ‘kissy-kissy’ greetings
  • Have gel or wipes with you at all times
  • Bread only distributed at Holy Communion

We will follow Government directives about any church closures. The Wednesday Liturgy is suspended for the next few weeks anyway.

If St. Paul’s has to close, and no worship can be provided there will always be a weekly sermon posted on the website – in printed form, and where possible, a voice recording. You can access these also on Facebook.

There is a very good ‘Daily Prayer’ app that you could download for free, and you will get Anglican Morning and Evening Prayer provided. It is very simple to use.

At home you might set aside time each day for some quiet reflection and prayer. Keep in touch with the elderly and in particular any known to you who live alone. At present shops that deliver food can stay open.

Pray for one another, and all who are suffering worldwide from this virus – including those whose livelihoods are affected eg. tourism

After two two hugely successful cycles of the Taste the Music series, United We Fly is releasing REMISSION. A new series of concerts, faithful to the special and exploring aesthetics of the projects created by the company in recent years. It all starts and evolves in the hospitable and beloved place of St. Paul’s evangelical Anglican Church. The REMISSION concert spring season begins on March 12th with Chimerini Kolimvites band. One of the most historic and idiosyncratic gatherings of the Greek music scene, Chimerini Kolimvites, launch the first REMISSION cycle, a few days before their 40th anniversary concert and 55 years since the creation of their original core with I. Papadas K. Sideris and A. Bakirtzis.

31st Choral Evensong at St Paul’s

31st Choral Evensong at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Philellinon 27, 10557, Athina

The Renaissance Choral Evensong services at St Paul’s are organised by the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli, the Athens Centre for Early Music (of the Ατhens Conservatory), and St Paul’s Anglican Church.

The Cappella Sancti Pauli, under the direction of Iason Marmaras, sing a series of Choral Evensong services that aim to revive the musical and liturgical practice at Cathedrals and Chapels during the Renaissance, but also the music as experienced by musicians in those times, seeing the music as a functional part of the liturgy, rather than as a building block for concerts.
