Renovations continue on Melbourne’s oldest Greek Orthodox church


The Holy Church of ‘The Annunciation of Our Lady’ will be temporarily closed this spring due to the installation of a new marble floor and furniture.

The continued restoration of the church has been made possible primarily due to the generous support of the Andrianopoulos Family.

The church will re-open for mass for the Christmas celebrations.
