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.


The Lockdown

Because of the new guidance from the Greek government, we are closed for in-person worship until at least - November 29


We will update you if plans change

Good News!

In late October,  we were grateful to hear that our application to the Diocese in Europe Hardship Fund has been approved; we will be receiving a grant of £3500 to assist us with the costs of operating the chaplaincy of St Thomas, Kefalas. 

This is the second grant we have received this year to help us through a difficult financial year, when our attendance is down, services have been suspended, and Sunday offerings have been less than hoped for. 

Thank you to the diocesan committee which approved this grant application.

The Anglican Church of St Thomas, Kefalas has been, and otherwise will be, dependent on the sacrificial giving of it's members, friends, and guests. 

Thank you for your ongoing financial support.

God be with you,
