What's on at St Helena's
Prayer for the week
Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of
darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this
mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great
humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his
glorious Majesty, to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to
the life immortal; through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and
the Holy Spirit, now and 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. There is a creche available for babies and small children during part of the morning service.
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
