We are a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) in the Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland, striving to live the Orthodox Faith.
We are a small but growing community from various backgrounds, with people from Russia, Romania, Greece and the USA with some British converts and others exploring the Christian Faith. At the last count we had 16 nationalities. We use the Julian Calendar and our services are mainly in English with some Church Slavonic and a little Greek. We are traditional and very welcoming. If you are Orthodox already and looking for a parish, we are a lovely community to join. If you are interested in the Orthodox faith you are most welcome to visit us.
Mother Photina of the Pokrov Skete near Tours will be visiting the parish from June 11th for about 2 weeks. She is making herself available for some teaching sessions on the Jesus Prayer on the mornings of Saturday 13th June and Saturday 20th June at Fr Paul's house (CH43 2HY). These sessions will end with a light lunch. Mother Photina will be giving a talk on repentence on Sunday 21st June after the Holy Liturgy. Should you wish to speak with her during her stay with us, please let Fr Paul know.
