We are delighted to welcome you to our website. We hope you find the information here interesting and useful, whether you are Orthodox Christians who live permanently in Alanya or are just here on vacation.
For those Orthodox Christians who wished to visit Alanya for years but did not know if there was a functioning Orthodox Church there, they can now see all they need to know in the “SCHEDULE OF SERVICES” section. In this section, there is a listing of the times and locations for the Divine Liturgy and other Holy Services each week.
In the “NEWS” section, you will receive information about events and special occasions of the Orthodox Community of Alanya and the Orthodox Metropolitan District of Pisidia, Side, and Antalya.
The greater purpose of this website is to foster community and connect all Orthodox of Alanya to a great spiritual family, so that no one feels alone as long as they live in this beautiful area.
In every Divine Liturgy, as well as in other Holy Services, we address petitions to God “For our Archbishop (the name), the reverend presbyters, the deacons in the service of Christ, and all our brotherhood in Christ.” In this, we are praying for the spiritual pastors (Bishop, Priests and Deacons) that the Church has made responsible for every liturgical and spiritual need of the faithful. This pastoral care for Christians continues until their departure from this world, and even beyond, with the offering of Memorial Services for the comfort of their souls.
