In July of 1974, the island of Cyprus was invaded by Turkey and subsequently saw one third of the population expelled from their homes.

It has been 50 years since the invasion, where Turkish troops entered Cyprus illegally.

On Sunday 28th July 2024 there will be a church service at Evangelismos church followed by a wreath laying service at 12.30pm at the war memorial in Kings Park.

We would like to invite you all to attend our service to honour and remember all those who had lost their lives, those that are still missing, those who lost their livelihood, their happiness and their freedom.

Please feel free to lay a wreath or some flowers to remember this very important day for Cyprus. We hope you are able to attend.

On the same day at 3.00pm, George Georgiou, with our support has kindly organised a commemorative concert to mark 50 years of unlawful occupation of Cyprus. Songs have been written and performed to lament the injustice of Cyprus. A concert has been specially arranged to include hand picked songs by Apostolis and Dimitris Fotiadis. Dalaras, Alkinos Ioannidis and Tokkas performed these songs.
