Welcome

Welcome to St. Constantine’s, a community of Orthodox Christians in the City of York. We are part of the Antiochian Archdiocese of the British Isles and Ireland, and practice the One, Holy, Catholic Faith given to us through tradition by the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Whether you are a practising Orthodox Christian looking for a local parish, a religious ‘seeker’, or simply curious, you are warmly welcome at our regular services. You will find all the information you need here, or you may contact the clergy by email.

St Constantine’s on the move!

Throughout the summer our usual home, the chapel at York St John, will close for renovation.

The Orthodox Community of St Constantine will not close! We shall continue to meet for the Divine Liturgy Sunday by Sunday in two different places in York.

Arrangements for our services are as follows:

May 27th – June 24th

Where: St Cuthbert’s Church, Peasholme Green, York (see map).
When: Sundays at 10am

Parking options:

  • We can continue to use the car park at Park Grove School – 12 mins walk away (see map).
  • Morrison’s car park on Foss Island Road – closer and also free, but strictly limited to 2 hrs maximum.
  • Use York’s Park and Ride service. Several routes will bring you close to St Cuthbert’s. You can find details of the routes at https://www.itravelyork.info/park-and-ride

July 1st – August 18th

Where: Quad South Hall on the YSJ campus. This is the former college chapel on Lord Mayor’s Walk (see map).
When: Sundays at 10am

Parking options:

  • The car park at Park Grove School – 8 mins walk away (see map).
  • If you arrive early there may be space in the campus car park.

We are very grateful to the people of St. Michael-le-Belfrey Church for kindly allowing us to use St Cuthbert’s Church, and to the University authorities for finding us alternative accommodation.

Fuller details on the temporary move and copies of these maps are also available to download as PDF files.
