Our church is open for public worship in accordance with the following rules:

  • maintain social distancing between households  
  • if you can, you should wear a face covering
  • there will be a maximum number of people in the church
  • no kissing or touching of icons or the Holy Gospel.
  • Government rules also limit the sharing of food within the church.  Kollyva will not be distributed after the memorial services.  Those who bring plates of kollyva will take them back with them as they leave to share with families at home.
  • A small group of chanters only, to offer the liturgical responses

Members of the board are responsible for maintaining order during services, please be courteous towards them and do as they ask.

Those showing any signs of illness should not come to church.  Likewise if you are fearful of catching coronavirus or you are in the various categories of vulnerable persons previously advised by the Government you should stay at home.

Please make make sure that you have washed yourselves thoroughly before you leave your homes to attend church services.  You will be asked to sanitize your hands before entering the church.

Welcome message from Father Stephen

Welcome to our website.  You will find here information about our community, our services and how to find our church.  You will see that we are a thriving and diverse community.  All are welcome, and while many of us come from traditional Orthodox countries – Greece, Cyprus, Romania, the Ukraine, Russia etc., many are British people who have found a home in Orthodoxy.  This is a surprise for some and they may be equally surprised that most of our services are conducted in English, because it is our common language.

Orthodoxy is not an exotic near Eastern phenomenon.  It is, quite simply “Christianity”! It is the Church founded by Jesus Christ after his Resurrection, which happened in Palestine, in the near East!  Orthodox Christianity is a wonderful religion, full of joy, hope and excitement. Every year we remember the events of Christ’s life, reflect on the meaning and renew ourselves through experiencing these feasts.

Beauty is very important for us, beauty in the icons, beauty in the church buildings, beauty in the chanting, beauty in the services.  We enjoy our Orthodoxy and hope that anyone who visits our community will have their minds opened to the ineffable glory and majesty of God, the Holy Trinity.

Orthodox Christianity is something that we LIVE and DO.  It affects the whole of our lives and is for every day and hour of the week.  Because it is something that we do, it is only by joining in with that “doing” that people can really understand what Orthodoxy is all about.  So, if you are interested “Come and See!”
