Saint Paul’s Church, Mytilene

This small, but beautiful, Orthodox Church of Saint Paul on the Greek island of Lesbos opened in 2006. This church honours and remembers Saint Paul’s arrival to Mitylene, the capital city of Lesbos. This was one of the stops he made whilst travelling around Greece. In the New Testament book, the Acts of the Apostles we read: ‘When he met us at Assos, we took him aboard and went on to Mitylene.’ (Acts 20:14).
