Churches and Places of Worship in Athens

For those visiting Athens and looking for a place particular church, temple or mosque this is a list of them though I have left out the Orthodox Churches since there is one on every block and the most famous ones are shown on most maps of Athens. The Athens News also has a list of Churches in Athens as well as a list of Community Organizations which are both in my Athens Practical Information Section. Also see my page on Greek Holidays and Easter.

Agios Andreas Church Services in English
Greece’s Orthodox Church will begin holding regular services in a modern Western language to cater to English-speaking churchgoers. The Orthodox liturgy hails directly from the Byzantine church tradition and is held in third-century Greek. The hymns will be still in Greek, otherwise the music would be destroyed. But all plain texts and the sermon will be in English. The service will be from 7.30-10.30 a.m. in the Chapel of Aghios Andreas in Plaka (19 Aghias Filotheis St). “This is the first time the Greek Orthodox Church has organized an English-language service on a regular basis,” said Father John Raffan, an Orthodox priest from Scotland who will conduct the weekly service.

St. Andrews International Church is an evangelical, inter-denominational, multi-national church serving the English-speaking, foreign community in the greater Athens area. Over twenty nationalities are represented within their two congregations. Worship services on Sunday are at9:00 AM in Kifissia and 11:30 AM in Athens at Zaimi 17. More information, along with maps to services, can be found on their web page: www.standrewsgreece.com

The Athens Mosque is still under construction according to the latest sources from the Ministry of Culture. The long delayed Islamic Center should be completed within the next few years; however I have found that there are alternative areas of worship and meditation, albeit they are rather makeship.  Those of the Islamic faith may try the CULTURAL OF ISLAMIC DEMOCRACY OF IRAN  in Philothei.  Tel. 210 6818154.  The Caravel Hotel has allocated an area for this purpose, however days and hours are subject to change at any given time without prior announcements, so it would be best to contact the hotel at 210 7253770.
