We generally have Divine Liturgy at 9.00am on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, with Matins at 6.00pm the preceding Saturday evening.  For other services, please see our current Schedule of Services, below.  On the first and third Sundays of each month our rector serves at Saint Panteleimon Russian Orthodox Church, West Gosford, and on the fifth Sunday, when such occurs, he visits and serves on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales.

As of February 2021, the number of people able to be present at all services in our church remains restricted by New South Wales Government public health orders to sixty-five (65). As attendance at regular services rarely exceeds this number, most services remain open to all who wish to attend.  Please check this webiste regularly for changes in attendance arrangements, particularly as Pascha approaches.
