HELP US RAISE 200.000 € TO START
THE BUILDING PROCESS OF OUR CHURCH!
HELP US TO START BUILDING THE FIRST ORTHODOX CHURCH IN THE
NORTHERNMOST CAPITAL OF THE WORLD - REYKJAVÍK
The Parish of Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Reykjavík, Iceland is the only Orthodox parish in the country where regular services are held.
At the moment, we use to gather for services in the home church which we have equipped ourselves on the ground floor of a rented private house. All our efforts are focused on building the FIRST Orthodox Church in Iceland in honor of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia.

We, the community of believers here in Iceland, are in great need of our own place to worship!
In 2011, the parish community was allocated a site for the construction of the church.
To build the church we need a total ammount of 4.500.000 € and the funds are exclusively destined for the entire building process of the church : documentation, workers, services, renting of special machines, tools, construction materials and everything else that a construction of a church requires.
BUT WE URGENTLY NEED 200.000 € !!!
to be able to make the construction drawings (Planning Phase) and to obtain, as soon as possible, the permission to start constructing (Execution/Implementation Phase) in order to preserve our land, the site allocated to us by the icelandic authorities for the construction of the temple.
WE HAVE A DEADLINE!
We must start constructing in January 2021 at the very latest, otherwise we are in danger of losing our site and the chance to build our church.
We are also in danger of having to move from the house we are renting right now for a very convenient price, at any time, because the landlord intends to sell it and has already got potential buyers visiting the house.
A new rent would mean a higher renting price for us and also expenses that we truly can not afford.
Your support for this cause and your help in building the church will mean so much for the community of Orthodox Christians in Iceland.
We will be eternally grateful for the help you will offer to us and will keep each and one of you in our prayers!
