90thAnniversary

This short documentary is the story of how in 1923 Armenians in London with the help of philanthropist Calouste Gulbenkian built a place of worship and communal gathering as one of the first steps towards re-building their lives after the virtual annihilation of the Armenian people in the Ottoman Empire, the first genocide of the 20th century. The Armenian Church in the UK, St. Sarkis Church Trust and St. Sarkis Church Parish celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the first Armenian Church in London with a series of educational, cultural and social events between September 2012 and January 2013.  Hratch Tchilingirian is Hon. President of St. Sarkis Church Trust and headed the 90th Anniversary celebrations.
