His Eminence Timotheos (Evangelinidis) was Metropolitan of Rhodes from 1947 to 1951. Before that, he was Metropolitan of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Australia and New Zealand between 1931-1947.

Succeeding Metropolitan Christoforos, in 1931 Timotheos (Evangelinidis) was elected as the second Metropolitan of Australia and New Zealand. Coincidentally, he arrived in Australia on Australia Day (Jan 26), 1932.

Metropolitan Timotheos had the distinction of having the longest reign within Australasia, a distinction he held until Archbishop Stylianos' reign of 32 years to date (1974-present).

He presided over the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Australia and New Zealand until his 1947 election as Metropolitan of Rhodes. He served in this capacity until 1951, when he was succeeded by Metropolitan Spyridon.
