The Church of The Holy Trinity and St Luke is a Greek Orthodox church in the north of Birmingham, England, dedicated to The Holy Trinity and St Luke. In Greek: "Ellinorthodoxi Ekklisia Tis Agias Triados kai Apostolou Louka". The church celebrates the Feast Day of St. Luke on 18 October.

History

The Church of the Holy Trinity and St Luke the Evangelist was founded in 1983. Until December 1994 services were held at an Anglican church in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. In 1992 it was decided to relocate the Church to the West Midlands Cypriot Community Centre in Erdington, Birmingham.

This was done with the help of the Church Council and the priest at the time, Fr Nikolaos Skapoulis, and the support and blessing of Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain. On 22 October 1995 Gregorios consecrated the new Church. Since then the Divine Liturgy was celebrated there on Sundays and main feast days. As of 2013 the priet of the church was Fr Christos Stephanou.

In 2007 a renovation program started in 2007 in which the roof was restored, a new ceiling installed, and frescoes painted on the walls depicting various biblical scenes in a Byzantine style.

Youth conference

The Church held an Orthodox Youth Conference on 26 January 2008, with a divine liturgy followed by talks by several speakers, ending with a Vespers service.
