The church of the 318 Godbearing Fathers is an Orthodox Church founded in 1985 by Archimandrite Barnabas Burton. The church is situated in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and we also serve the liturgy once a month in Telford. The church belongs to the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church and is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain.
All are welcome. Many people have found a home in our community: those who have moved here from traditional Orthodox Christian countries and those who have have joined from other faiths or no faith. Our liturgical services are mainly in English but you will hear a little Greek, Romanian and Slavonic.
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!”
