Greek song event at Brighton church draws church’s rebuke

Disrespect alleged in Brighton church concert


Musicians took their seats and began playing Greek songs inside the Holy Trinity Church in Brighton, marking an event that later sparked controversy.

The Holy Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain issued a statement expressing “deepest sorrow and intense abhorrence” over what it termed a “sad incident of a musical nature” at the church.

The statement described the event as an act of “disobedience to the ecclesiastical authority, disrespect, and desecration of holy places.” The Holy Archdiocese emphasized that neither it, nor His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas, nor the bishops had any prior knowledge of the event.

“The Holy Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain expresses its deep sorrow and intense abhorrence regarding the sad incident of a musical nature, which took place inside the Holy Trinity Church in Brighton, southern England, under the leadership of Archimandrite Panesiologist Mr. German Kurkounis,” the statement read.

The Archdiocese noted that it has taken “appropriate measures” in response to the incident and expressed hope that such events would not recur. “We pray that the Most High will preserve the Church from similar unpleasant events in the future,” the statement concluded.

No further details were provided about the specific measures taken or the individuals involved in organizing the event.
