In April 1975 His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos arrived in Australia as the new Primate and Spiritual Leader of the Greek Orthodox faithful in Australia.

Another fourteen years were to pass, when at the beginning of 1976, the property situated at 81 Beulah Road was acquired.

In September 1976, Father Theodoros departed for Greece and his position as the new parish priest was taken up by Rev. Haralambos Stratos.

With the advent of the new priest and within the space of a year the Executive Committee purchased the residence at 85 Beulah Road which adjoined the Church. The acquisition of this property saw the Community/Parish now acquire all the properties between the Church and the Church of England Parish Hall. Over the next two years the houses were demolished and the area was filled, levelled and bituminised, converting it to the carpark that it continues to be today.

This work was done by the parishioners and many volunteers who gave of their time quite freely. Not only was this area used as a carpark but also for religious, sporting and social activities.

To overcome difficulties on the other side of the Church, which were encountered on Special Feast Days and at Easter, the Executive Committee decided in 1983 to purchase the property at 89 Beulah Road, notwithstanding the economic difficulties being encountered.

The newly acquired property was renovated by voluntary labour to enable it to be rented. The fence was moved closer to the house and the boundary adjusted to enlarge the area adjoining the Church to generally facilitate the movement of the congregation at Easter or on Special Feast Days.
