Temporary base of the Holy Metropolis of Morphou
After the Turkish invasion, the headquarters of the Morphou Metropolis moved to Evrychou, continuing its important work.
Initially, the base of the occupied Metropolis was housed in the primary school building. Then, thanks to the economic contribution of the Holy Archdiocese, it has improved a lot and since then it has been known as the “Bishopric of the Holy Metropolis of Morphou”. The preserved church from the end of the ’74 is the metropolitan church.
The Morphou metropolis from its refugee base continued to play an important role in the spiritual life of the place, guiding the people. Its great offer to the village and the region is important to mention. This is also evident through the establishment of charity centres and the organization of religious and cultural organizations.
Particularly valuable work of the Morphou Metropolis is the establishment of the Solea Multipurpose Centre. Its creation began during the time when Metropolitan Chrysanthos was in power, and was completed by Metropolitan Neophytos. The project started on the 1st of May 2001 to provide housing and care to the elderly in the village and the wider area of the metropolitan area. Additionally, the Centre undertakes home care and food for vulnerable population groups.
