We have catechism for people joining the Orthodox Church, two weekly scripture study sessions. For those interested in church leadership, we help to organise and teach at the Thyateira Midlands Ecclesiastical Seminary that operates from St Luke’s, Birmingham.
Our church has an active youth programme. We meet twice a month on the first Sunday of each month for Sunday School for younger children (up to 10) and the third Sunday of the month for the Varangian Guard Youth Club for children 5 and above. Our church leaders also organise the archdiocese children’s summer camp, Camp Saint Sophrony.
We encourage members of our community to help us to support local and international charities and initiatives with special events, collections and volunteering. The work of some of the charities that we regularly support is described in the next page.
