From the Revd James Buxton, Chaplain
A very Happy New Year to you and welcome to our website!  Here you can find details of our regular services and events, the special services coming up and information about the Anglican presence in Izmir, past and present.  If you would like to find out more about us, do not hesitate to get in touch, or best of all come and join us. 

We warmly invite you to come to the Eucharist on Sunday mornings at 10.00 am at St John's Church, Alsancak.  The Eucharist is followed by refreshments in the Church Hall.  
We also meet weekly in Bornova, at St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church.  We invite you to join us there on Tuesday afternoons at 5.00 pm, for a short service of evening prayer.  See separate page for more information about the Anglican Church of St Mary Magdalene, Bornova.  

18-25 January 2020
Christians in Izmir take our Lord's Command to his disciples that 'They shall all be ONE' (John 17:21) very seriously.  We know we have a long way to go but we appreciate the opportunity that the Week of Prayer gives to us to come together to pray.    This year there are four Unity Week services.  We warmly invite you to join us.
