Raising funds to help towards the completion of the church hall

The Macedonian Orthodox Church "Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God" - Sydenham, is a Cathedral church of the Australian-New Zealand Diocese. It was founded in 1996, when the church site was purchased, on which a temporary temple was soon built and adapted, in which church services and parish activities began to be performed. 

The external construction of the temple was completed in 2009 when a small consecration of the church was made.
In 2017, the construction of the building of the Parish Cultural Center was started, which will serve the mission of the Church, for the church needs of the believers, for all parish activities, including the Sunday Orthodox school, the Orthodox school for all ages, as an all other ecclesiastical and cultural manifestations of the Macedonian Orthodox youth and the Macedonian people in Melbourne.

The construction of the center is in an advanced stage. The lock-up stage has been completed and the internal construction and exterior arrangement have started.

So far, nearly 500 thousand Australian dollars have been collected and invested in the construction of this Parish Cultural Center, collected by the Diocese, the Macedonian Orthodox Churches, and the Macedonian Orthodox believers as a donation.

Money raised will go towards & support the completion of:

Heating and cooling
