The Twelve ApostlesWelcome to the website of The Twelve Apostles Greek Orthodox Church. The church is one of many Greek Orthodox churches in the United Kingdom. It serves as the spiritual centre for the community of Hertfordshire and beyond. Any visitor to our church will tell you that it is like a little monastery you expect to find at the top of a mountain in Cyprus or Greece.

Our church welcomes worshipers from other Orthodox Christian communities (Greek and non-Greek) and is especially popular with the younger generation who select it for their weddings and baptisms. We are the only Greek Orthodox church in the United Kingdom that broadcasts live video (see links above) and caters for online bookings (see link above) for weddings and baptisms. In addition, for weddings, we have authority to perform the civil ceremony at the same time as the religious one.

Throughout 2016 there will be numerous events organised to celebrate this special year in our history.

Please look out for information of the events on our website and in our monthly church magazine.

Everybody is welcome and we look forward to seeing you.
