Welcome to the official website of the Holy Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand or else known as The English Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand since it represents officially the English speaking Orthodox in Australia and New Zealand.

The Archdiocese represents all lay, Clergy, Communities, and Churches that are under the jurisdiction of the English speaking Orthodox in Australia and New Zealand.

Our organisation, in an effort to understand the modern man who lives in an age of radical revision and pure anti-traditionality; whilst at the same time, is suppressed by the prevailing materialistic standards; we have created our website as another step in the effort made to be close to the -admittedly- afflicted modern man, who has alienated and removed their existence from the Christian values that our Church advocates, with the most important of these being the love and unity of all our fellow humans, irrespective of creed, color, ethnicity, and social orientation.

Because of this effort, we wish to be close to our fellow humans with modern means, free of "borders". At the same time utilise practical social media means, that when used properly becomes an inexhaustible source of knowledge, entertainment, information, and peace.

As the Archbishop of Australia and New Zealand, welcome you to the official site of our Archdiocese, and we hope you, find it useful.
