On Saturday, 27th May the Anglican Church of Paphos presented a brilliant Charity Variety Show ‘For one night only’, sponsored by Sapphire Diner and Rock & Sole, at the Stage One theatre in Emba. The theatre was almost full with the audience enjoying some excellent talent – professional and amateur, both as individuals and groups.
Chris Andre was magnificent, playing and singing with his guitar and also playing his ‘fiddle’ and Caz Hill a very talented young lady from the UK sang both popular and classical songs. The show also featured young dancers, a monologue, duets, soloists, the Harmony choir and Spellbound, a Ladies Barber Shop chorus.
There were ‘audience participation’ activities including ‘Sing-a-long’s’ with songs from the Old Time Music Hall, the Carpenters, and traditional Golden Oldies.
The church usually selects one charity each year and carries out activities to raise funds. This year we are supporting three smaller charities they are: The Alzheimer Group, Paphos branch; The Regional Volunteer Association, Polis District; and The Learning Refuge all who help those who are sick, hungry, homeless or in need of support including completing Government forms and learning new skills so that they can find work.
The raffle held on the night, with prizes donated by local businesses and individuals, coupled with the proceeds from ticket sales, raised in total some €3,100 which will be shared between the church and the three charities. We would like to thank all those who took part or helped in any shape or form but especially the people who bought tickets, came, and participated.

The right kind of light white fluffy clouds with breakthroughs of sunshine formed the scene for the annual Ascension Day Service in Pyki Forest, where we celebrated Jesus rising to heaven with an al-fresco Holy Communion. Some 22 people from all three churches attended (along with ACP mascot, Floki) to enjoy this special occasion organised jointly by St Luke's and St Stephen's. Following the service many of the assembled congregation stayed to enjoy a 'bring your own' lunch.'
Coronation Tea Party
What an excellent Coronation Afternoon Tea we had on Monday 8 May. Some 60 people attended and 500 euros was raised for church funds. Good company, good food and good fun. Well done to the Fundraising Team for all their hard work in organising the event.
