Canon Derek Smith and his wife Sue

Derek & Sue Smith, Kalo Taxidi!


We are currently in a period of Interregnum, as we prayerfully seek a new Parish Priest.

On 31st July 2017, after 8 years as our Parish Priest, Rev Canon Derek Smith retired and with his wife Sue, has returned to UK.

Derek and Sue have made a major contribution to the growth of our Parish over the past 8 years. During that time a new church was established in Pissouri (St Lazarus), an extension built at St Barnabas and our youth ministry expanded.

They will be fondly remembered for their love, warmth and hospitality in the Parish, and to quote Bishop Michael, “they are immersed in the faith of Christ and the love of God for his people, with a passionate burden for justice, and I believe that St Barnabas, St Lazarus, and the whole Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf can give profound thanks for their time amongst us”
