This church is so different from Frank Lloyd Wright's other buildings and is well worth a visit. I was with a group an had a very nice tour by a volunteer who knew a lot about Wright as well as the history of the church. Of special note, FLW also designed the icons for the iconostasis, but a recent pastor... More

I am not Greek but attended a funeral there and felt welcomed by everyone. I also had attended Easter Mass several years ago and found it just a beautiful.

Obviously the Church is beautiful and a landmark. It is also a beautiful Divine Liturgy (normally at 9:30am). We decided to stay for the 'coffee hour'. It is in the fellowship hall/gym - the curved wood ceiling is more interesting than any gymnasium I've seen. Good coffee though they ran our a bit early. We felt very welcome - Emanuel... More

We had the pleasure of touring the building when it was open for a festival a few years ago, and could not believe how beautiful this building is. If you get the chance to see it, don't pass it up. A marvel of modern design.

Once in awhile this church will be open to the public, or you can always attend their services. It's more interesting when they hold the Greek festival and have a guide tell you about how it was built. Of course it's Frank Lloyd Wright so it was built way over budget and after he was dead, but nothing was skimped... More

I liked to study the icons. The guide was very interesting. He told about the church services and the meanings of the icons and other religious sympols throught the church.

We're Frank Lloyd Wright fans so went out of our way to get the Sunday services at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church as guests. The church is in an open space in an urban setting so it is easy to get a full view from the outside. It's a different FLW experience than his more prairie architecture--more like the ASU performance... More

Firstly, you need to read the other reviews with caution. The church is not 'round' but cruciform in shape if viewed from above. And the Greek Festival was moved off site years ago. However, this masterpiece, finished after Frank Lloyd Wright's death, is stunning. If you can get a tour inside, you will not be disappointed, the building is truly... More

This church is one of a kind. You won't see a church like this in a lot of places. Very famous designer...completely round and beautiful windows. It's nice to check out. They have a great greek festival during the summer...they now offer fish fry on fridays. Definitely look them up and see all the events they have.
