The presence of Orthodox Christianity in Angola is a recent event. Christianity was introduced to the indigenous population of Angola during the colonial Portuguese period by the Roman Catholic Church. Orthodox Christianity missionary efforts in Angola began in the late twentieth century under the jurisdiction of the Church of Alexandria. Currently, Angola is within the local jurisdiction of the Holy Archdiocese of Zimbabwe and Angola.

The Archdiocese of Zimbabwe includes within its jurisdiction, in addition to Angola, the countries of Zimbabwe, and Malawi. Since 2004, the primate of the Metropolis has been His Eminence Seraphim (Kykkotis). Archimandrite Chrysostomos Polizos is vicar of the Metropolitan for Angola.

The parish of St. Eleftherios and Venerable Paisios of Mt. Athos has been established in Luanda.
