Fundraiser BBQ to be held at Saint Sophia Cathedral in Paddington

·

A fundraiser barbeque will be held at Saint Sophia (Wisdom of God) Cathedral in Paddington, Sydney on Sunday, June 23 at 11.30am.

The barbeque is being held to raise funds for the Church of the Holy Trinity (Aghia Triada) in Surry Hills, Sydney, which recently reopened in June 2024 after being closed for months of extensive restoration and renovation.

The Church of the Holy Trinity is the oldest Greek Orthodox church in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere. It has been given State Heritage Status by the New South Wales Government, and is managed by the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW (GOCNSW).

The Board of the GOCNSW in conjunction with the Holy Trinity Restoration Committee, launched the 125th Anniversary Restoration Appeal in June 2023 with the aim of restoring the church to its former glory.

Stage four will include: concrete repairs to Bell Tower side returns, replacement of eight elevation side windows and coating works, the provision of a disabled entry ramp off Bourke Street, the replacement of side and main entry doors off Bourke Street, the restoration and cleaning of eroded windows and surrounds, the preparation and affixing of the Honour and Donors Boards, and the preparation and affixing of a marble plaque.

The fundraiser barbeque will be held at Saint Sophia (Wisdom of God) Cathedral at 302 South Dowling Street, Paddington, Sydney on Sunday, June 23 at 11.30am.
