A buffet meal is usually served after Sunday Divine Liturgy, and everyone is welcome to join us in the feast.

Saturday Great Vespers is held in Braithwaite Chapel during British Summer Time (BST), and in Greta Villas, Keswick during the Winter (GMT) period. This helps us keep the heating costs down.

Weekday Matins is only served when Fr John is able, and regretably this isn't predictable, however you can be assured that he and Jenny will be saying either Matins or 1st Hour.  If you want to attend, please make sure that you have contacted Father by telephone to confirm.

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,
We are part of the Exarchate of Western Europe,
which is an Archdiocese under the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
