New Anglican church consecrated in the steps of St Paul

[Christianity Today UK] 28 May 2008--The Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe followed in the steps of St Paul last Saturday to consecrate a missionary endeavour on the Greek island of Crete.

The consecration took place during a visit to the Anglican Church of St Thomas, built in the form of a traditional Cretan mountain chapel with outdoor worship area for summer use.

The church was built by Tony Lane, formerly a steel boat builder from Bristol and his wife Suzanne who retired to Crete seven years ago.

Speaking to the “Athens News” newspaper Tony says it is the first Anglican church to be built in Greece since St Andrew’s, Patra 145 years ago.
