News from The Hermitage

Beauty from ashes. 

It is extremely difficult for any of us, who are born into a situation of privilege, to speak  with any integrity on hopelessness and despair. Yet we do pray regularly for those who are “worse off than ourselves”. In many of our services we have someone who leads the prayers of intercession for us, guiding the collective thoughts of God’s assembled people  to bring before God his church throughout the world, the secular governments and  powers and dominions of this world, our own ministry and life, as well as those who are  fragile in any way, and in need of his loving and healing touch…………..See more

St Andrew’s Olive Oil 

October is traditionally Harvest Time in many countries in the northern hemisphere, and Cyprus is no different. When we think of the Mediterranean and its wonderful healthy diet we are often reminded of one of its staple ingredients – olive oil.

In 2009 the garden of the Chaplain’s residence, the Hermitage, was planted with olive trees under the direction of the then Chaplain, the Rev’d Michael Houston through the generosity of Michael May. The olives are maintained through the hard work of parishioners and friends. It is self-funded and is a fundraising initiative of St Andrew’s.

Each year “volunteers” come together to gather this bountiful crop to be processed into the outstanding, though not quite yet award-winning, St Andrew’s brand. Although the work is hard the reward is great, made easier by those who, though perhaps not able to sustain the rigours of reaching the topmost branches of the trees, provide the pickers with wonderful home-made sustenance in the form of delicious refreshments…………..See more.
