Greek Orthodox Church (1099 words)
The first organised Greek Orthodox Community, however, was established in London in the 1670s, when a group of some 100 refugees, probably from Mani, led by a priest named Daniel Voulgaris, sought permission from the Church and State Authorities of England to create a Greek Orthodox religious centre in the heart of London.
This church, however, was confiscated without reason by the Authorities in 1684 and handed over to the Huguenots to the dismay of the Greek Archbishop who gave vent to his anger over this flagrant injustice in a pamphlet, a copy of which is now in the British Library.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain is organised on the model of the Oecumenical Patriarchate itself, where the various dioceses under its spiritual control enjoy a high level of autonomy.
