Who are we?
Our parish is quite young, having been formed a few years ago when Fr John and his wife Jenny moved to Keswick. Our parishioners come from many orthodox traditions, including Greek, Cypriot, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, as well as native British who have joined the orthodox communion. We do not represent any particular ethnicity but aim to present and support the ancient orthodox christian heritage for everyone.
If you are Orthodox, you will fit right in; if you are interested in Orthodoxy or if you would just like to join us for a service to see what we do, you will be warmly welcomed. We are familiy-friendly too.
We belong to the Deanery of Great Britain and Ireland, Now part of the Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Bririan.
We are part of the Ecumentical Patriarchate. (but we celebate in English, not Greek or Russian)
