Apologies if you feel I am thwarting your plans, but you you did ask 'Would I need planning permission to build a little church on a bit of land '

I just answered the question.

By all means go ahead, if you are willing to take the risk.

Good luck and Kali Anastasi.

The 'House of the Lord' is everywhere and, if one wished to construct a building worthy of his name, the dimensions of the structure will be found in the heart of the one wishing to undertake the task.

As to myself (despite my purposeful habit of demeaning myself in order to entertain others) I am aware that the only dimensions fitting the 'Glory of the Almighty' are quite unknown to mankind since the entire universe is the greatest measurement we are capable of recognizing and even that is not sufficient.

Imagination is the only source of greater dimensions, therefore, construct your 'Church' in your heart and you will receive the true blessings of 'The Almighty' and those 'Permissions and Archbishops' which are merely tools in the trade of forced subservience, will fade into the fog of insignificance where they truly belong.

The world in which we now live is testament to the truth of that, God Bless one and all in these helpless times. (imho) :wink:

Hey, hey, hey! That comment wasn't directed at you!

I meant that I wouldn't want to seek permission from either the church or some authority to build this spiritual commemoration if I don't need to. I can imagine the questions they would ask. :roll: I hate having to justify something I feel passionate about. Your suggestions have been really useful - thank you. :)

Kali Anastasi to you too. :)

It's more for the praise of my parents than the Lord. But He can cohabit. :)

i am afraid the church cannot give permission what you need isplanning permission and building permission. without either even if you built such a thing it should ne knocked down if therule oflaw applies but than again this is the banana republic we are talking about.

do your parents and the rest of nature a fvour and pland a few olive carob and almond trees. a church does not belong ona forest land no different than the flags

...nice GIG.

I suggest you find out how other churches in Cyprus, like your's, were built; your's is not the first i imagine.

...frankly, i would not go to the church for the reasons you explained; indeed you will someday be obliged to give the church to them if it is their priest you want to offer the service, that is a long way from now.

Cheers, kalo paska, xrovia pola.

Please update us.

Ἀληθῶς ἀνέστη Linichka. :D

Thank you for the kind words of support - it's great to hear you'd do likewise. It's just a bit of scrub-land really.

It will be a miracle if I succeed. :)

Since when have Turks bought next door? You just invade and take, don't you - or are you going soft?
