On Sunday 26th May 2024, His Grace Bishop Maximos of Melitene celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Church of St Andrew the Apostle in Egham. The V. Revd Archimandrite Grigorios Laurenzano concelebrated with His Grace and the Revd Archdeacon George Tsourous also served.

At the end of Matins, His Grace tonsured Georgios Sarafidis, Charalampos Sarafidis and Neophytos Ferekkides as Readers.

At the conclusion of the Liturgy, Bishop Maximos bestowed the Office of Confessor to the V. Revd Archimandrite Grigorios Laurenzano, recognising his dedicated pastoral work and authorising him to offer spiritual guidance as a confessor.

Afterwards, the community warmly welcomed Bishop Maximos at a reception outside the Church, where the faithful had the opportunity to meet and interact with him.
