What's on at St Helena's
Prayer for the week
You know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers,
that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand
upright: grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in
all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ
your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Who we are
St Helena's is an English language church located in the centre of Larnaca on the south east coast of Cyprus. Since 1907 Christian worship has been offered from our premises.
We are part of the worldwide Anglican communion. Our members come from many backgrounds and countries, and participate fully in the life and service of God.
Our primary work at St Helena's is ministry to English speakers in a radius of about 30km around Larnaca.
Besides Sunday services, there are Bible studies, prayer times, pastoral care, and ladies' coffee afternoons. Other social and fundraising events take place through the year.
We provide wedding preparation and ceremonies for many couples each year, both local and from the UK. Our weddings are in the Anglican style and are conducted either at the church or at one of the several local hotels. The weddings page has more information.
St Helena's can provide a full funeral service for churchgoers and non-churghgoers alike. We regard this as part of the pastoral mission of the church.
St Helena's Church is part of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf
The diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf is one of four dioceses in the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, and includes Cyprus, the Gulf States, Iraq and Yemen.
