Saint Spyridon's Greek Orthodox Church

This Church is not too far from where I love.  It’s Saint Spyridon’s Greek Orthodox Church.  Although I’ve never been inside this Church, I know it gets busy as I’ve seen lots of people going into the services on a Sunday.  According to their website, it was built in 1831 and used to be an Anglican Church.  But a decline in numbers in the 60’s saw the closure of the Church.  But in 1963 it was given to Greek community in the town, and it’s been used as an Orthodox Church ever since.

They say that about 120 people attend their Sunday services each week, which is good.  I know there is quite a large Greek community in Great Yarmouth.  Many of them run the restaurants on the seafront.  This Church is about a 5 or 10 minute walk from the seafront, and is in the heart of the community.  They are currently undergoing a 10 year restoration programme in stages.  I think this is a beautiful Church.  I really must try and go inside at some point and have a look around.

You can visit their website here to get more information on the Church.
