The Anglican Church of St. Thomas, Kefalas

The Anglican Church of St. Thomas, Kefalas.

We are the only Anglican church on Crete. However, all Christian denominations are welcome at our services. We are situated within the Apokoronas area of Crete, east of Chania, in the picturesque rural village of Kefalas.

We hope that this website will guide you around the Parish - our worship, events and organisations and contact points for any further information.

Turned By Divine Love

The Small Group Bible Study continue its study of John Stroyan's Turned by Divine Love: Starting again with God and with others. 

Bishop John is the Bishop of Warwick in the Diocese of Coventry, and he and Mary Stroyan are occasional visitors to St Thomas's. 

My thanks to Martha Zoubaki and Jan Lovell for leading this series. We meet online on Wednesdays at 7:30 PM EEST using the same Zoom link above that we use for Sunday worship.

Bishop John will join the group by Zoom from England on Wednesday, August 10.


Thank you for your sacrifical giving which enables the ministry of our church to continue forward 

We receive no funding from the government, and are dependent on the sacrificial giving of our members. We have received some grants from the Diocese in Europe's Hardship Fund, but this has met only a fraction of our expenses. 

We are a low-cost operation - but the costs are still there. 

So thank you for your support!

If you value the ministry of St Thomas's, would you please consider supporting it, if you are not already doing so? 

Please consider making a monthly automatic debit to either our Greek bank account or our account in England; our treasurer, Mary Hurley, can help you make those arrangements. You can reach her at [email protected] or +30 28250 83219.

Wherever the Spirit takes you over the next month, may God be with you. 

I look forward to seeing you, whether in person or online!
