Population estimates are based on a UK Greek population of 500,000, with 300,000 living in London and 200,000 outside of London. Assuming each wholly owned Greek Orthodox Church serves a regional congregation of 1,500-2,000 (higher for those with a resident priest), each Greek community with a place of worship numbers 1,000-1,500, those without a place of worship < 1,000, and each Greek Orthodox cathedral in England (seven in London and one in Birmingham) serves a Greek Orthodox congregation of 38,500.
