Dear venerable Hierarchs and beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,

The Bishop Spartas Trust for Education in Uganda

‘Someone told me that poor people don’t have dreams, but I didn’t believe that, because God cares.  All this time I have been waiting, and now I think it’s the time for my dreams.’ This was how Athanasios, a young Orthodox Ugandan, responded to the news that he could finally enrol at Kampala International University to study Computer Science

Northern Singing

News form the Community of St Bega, St Mungo, St Cuthbert & St Herbert, Keswick, UK.

Matushka Elizabeth, with Fr Timothy Curtis, have conducted two music workshops in our parish this year. These have been hugely successful, and have motivated and inspired us in the formation of a choir. Because they took place here, they were well attended by our busy working members who would not be free to travel away. We highly recommend the format and style used, being informative and positive, yet relaxed, and effectively encouraging those recent members entirely new to Orthodox singing. The whole parish has been revitalized by these two events.

Thanks be to God.
Jenny Musther, Parish secretary


Archbishop John visit to our Deanery

Archbishop John came to London from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th October to visit the Deanery of Great Britain. He joined the monastic meeting and the senior clergy meeting before presiding over the deanery clergy meeting at which two major themes were discussed: clergy training and preparation to baptism.

The following day, the clergy gathered to celebrate Matins at the local chapel of Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira where the servant of God Aristoboulos (Karl) Lyon was tonsured Reader. Clergy and lay representatives then met for the annual clergy-laity meeting of the Deanery. Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira kindly came to visit and greet Archbishop John and members of the Assembly.

Archbishop John’s visit concluded on Sunday with a beautiful liturgy concelebrated with seven priests and three deacons at the parish of the Dormition of the Mother of God in London during which Priest Stephane Maikovsky was elevated to the rank of Archpriest, Deacon Julian Lowe was ordained Priest and the servant of God James Angus was tonsured Reader.
