We were delighted to host a concert recording by the wonderful local ensemble Izmir Baroque, under the direction of Bulent Oral.  This charming concert of Baroque chamber music and songs was filmed.  The video of the concert includes lovely shots of the interior of our church.  To view, click on this link: 

Our congregation members come from many different parts of the world, but our common language is English, which we use both in our worship and in our other meetings.   
In normal times we meet weekly for Evening Prayer on Tuesday afternoons at  St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, Bornova.  However, during the health crisis this service is suspended.  We meet on-line instead.
