Our Community

Our parish meets every Sunday at the Chapel of York St. John University. We celebrate the Divine Liturgy and other liturgical services in the English language.

The congregation is effectively pan-Orthodox. We have many British members as well as those whose ‘home’ churches are Russian, Greek, Romanian, Antiochian, etc. In the spirit of the inter-Orthodox talks at Chambesy, all Orthodox Christians of any jurisdiction are welcome.

We are also frequented by many visitors and enquirers into the Orthodox faith. If you are interested, please contact any of our clergy, and come visit us on Sunday morning.

To find us, see the map of the university campus on which the chapel is marked.

The Community, under the direction of the archdiocese, has a policy for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. There are more details here.

The monthly calendar (see the link above) lists the major saints commemorated on each day, including those for the British Isles, details of the appointed readings for the day and a note on the fasting rules.
