Welcome to St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Virginia Beach. Our church is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, The Holy Metropolis of New Jersey, under the spiritual guidance of His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos.
On November 19, 1980, a small gathering of Orthodox faithful made a commitment to pursue establishing a new Greek Orthodox Church to serve the Orthodox community in Virginia Beach. From this inauspicious initial gathering, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church was born.
Today, St. Nicholas is a vibrant community of men and women from every background and age. This Church family continually searches for dynamic ways to serve the Lord, manifest the light of Christ to the world and try to address the needs of all of God’s people. St. Nicholas faithfully comes together at the Divine Liturgy every Sunday to worship the Lord; and in this light discover the manner and means by which to better know Him and do His will. We welcome you in our Church family and are glad you have made St. Nicholas your spiritual home where you can plant roots and expand your relationship with God and others.
Our Sunday Service starts with 8:45 a.m. Orthros, followed by our Divine Liturgy at 10 a.m. (Summer hours start mid June thru August; Orthros – 8:30 a.m., Liturgy 9:30 a.m.) We have many ministries at Saint Nicholas including Adult Ministries, Youth Ministries and Educational Ministries. For information regarding our ministries, please call the church office.
Again, Welcome and God Bless!
