The Orthodox Church worships God in continuity with the earliest Church, and as such is the oldest Church.
It is a Church of balance: between the mystical and the real; between spirituality and theology; between worship and service of humanity. Everything is in balance, otherwise known as "right worship" (Orthodox).
It is not a denomination, but rather pre-denominational. It is not a religion but rather a life with God in Christ.
The Orthodox Church worships God in "spirit and truth" and dynamically incarnates that truth in every age - empowering all people from all walks of life to love God, others, and themselves.
Fr. Moses’ philosophy has always been to create a happy atmosphere full of laughter; and he strongly believes in the quote by St Francis of Assisi, “Preach the Gospel always, if necessary use words”.
Having graduated from the Faculty of Civil Engineering from UNSW, and completing his Masters in Project Management, he was chosen by the grace of God to be ordained as a priest to serve the missionary Church in Japan in 2017. Fr Moses is currently studying his Masters degree in Theology at St Cyril’s Theological College under the guidance of Fr Daniel Fanous.
When God chose to flip the page and add another special chapter in his life, he relocated to Wollongong to serve our beloved parish in 2020 along with his wife, Jess, and we are all their children.
