A Message from Fr Stephen, our Parish Priest

You will find on our website information about our community, our services and how to find our church.  You will see that we are a diverse community with many nationalities represented in our congregations.  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 somehow left behind as a residue of the Ottoman Empire.  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 singing, 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 not a theoretical religion of books and study (though we do have plenty of books) but it is something that we LIVE and DO.  It affects the whole of our lives and is certainly not confined to Sundays.  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!”
