Our church has a vibrant community of people from nearly every continent and all ages. This is, first and foremost, reflected in the languages used within the Holy Liturgy: Greek, English and Romanian are all used on a weekly basis, as well as having regular Holy Liturgies solely in English and, occasionally, Russian.
Our church holds many events designed simply to enable the congregation to be together, growing in communion with one another in fellowship and towards the head of that communion, Jesus Christ. If you would like to know more information regarding some of the events that have already taken place, and those that we are planning to do, please visit the Events Tab for more details. We look forward to seeing you soon.
History of the Cathedral
The church of St Michael originated as a mission church and from 1910 services were held in a temporary iron church in Golders Green Road. In 1914, when the parish was taken from that of St Mary, Hendon, work began on the building of a new church. This church, a large Gothic building of buff brick, was designed by J.T. Lee of Tufnell Park. Two more bays were added to the nave in 1925 and a low north western tower, surmounted by a classic cupola, was added in 1960. From 1970 the church was shared with a Greek Orthodox community, which had previously used Christ Church, Brent Street. St Michael’s Church was closed in 1979 on union with St Alban the Martyr and is now used wholly by an Orthodox congregation made up of Greeks, Cypriots, Russians, Romanians, Egyptians and English.
