AnamnisiChania is a new evangelical/charismatic church and Christian outreach centre in the heart of Chania. It started in 2015 as a Christian coffee shop and drop in centre providing free facilities for showers and clothes washing for those without access to them. The ministry quickly expanded to adjoining premises where second hand clothes, bedding and other items are now distributed to those in need.  At the beginning of 2017 AnamnisiChania began to hold church services on Sunday mornings, meeting in its large basement room.  It attracts an international congregation and services are conducted in English and Greek.

Led by Ilias and Nellie Tsartsampaladis the church welcomes visitors to Crete and ex-pats living on the island to join with people living in the neighbourhood for a friendly, informal style of worship and bible teaching and fellowship.

The name “Anamnisi” comes from Isaiah 26 and is the Greek word for “renown”

“we wait for You. Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts”

Meetings: start at 11.00 am on Sundays but you are welcome to arrive earlier for coffee and fellowship. There is also a meeting for prayer and worship on Wednesday evenings at 7.00pm.


AnamnisisChania is situated in the heart of Chania town centre, just a short walking distance from the KTEL bus station. It is located on the corner of Ionas and Manousogiannakidon Streets, just two blocks away from Skalidi, the main shopping street.
