Community Centre

After the purchase of the Community premises in 1994 the leaders of our Community had decided to build a new Church in Byzantine style and a new Community Centre. In 1997 the leaders started the ball rolling, by having meetings and consultations with various professionals and with the local planning authorities in the London Borough of Harrow. Mr. Simon Koupparis was appointed as Architect of the project, Mr. Anthonis Savvides as Civil Engineer and Mr. Alex Alekou as Quantity Surveyor.

In 14th December 2004 a meeting was called in the Church of St. Panteleimon. His Eminence the Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain Gregorios had presided. Members of all Committees of the Community had attended. The decision of the meeting was to go ahead with the project, building first the Community building and then the new Church.

The Community Centre was build within 2006 and on 24th December of that year the Archbishop blessed it. This Centre serves the various needs of the Community, mainly the Educational ones (Nursery School, Hellenic College etc.).
