Sunday 22nd July: 








This is a RARE OPPORTUNITY to spend time with one of Orthodoxy’s MOST PROMINENT MODERN THEOLOGIANS, together in fellowship as a Parish. Please do also spread the word and invite friends and family to join us and come ready with any pertinent questions.


We will all learn a good deal and enjoy each other’s company as a community outside our usual services. All are welcome, whether members of our parish or not.

Fr John is also running a Seminar on “The Gospel of John and the Future of Christian Theology”, July 16 – 19 in Crawley, Sussex.  See Events Page for details.

Co-op Charity

This year we have been nominated to receive charity donations from Clifton Village Co-op. If you live within 15 miles of Clifton Co-op and have a blue Co-op membership card, you can vote for more of their charity donation to come our way whenever you visit Clifton Co-op.


Use www.easyfundraising.org.uk for your online shopping – Amazon, John Lewis and hundreds of others. You just access your usual site via easyfunding, selecting our church as your chosen charity, and they give a percentage to the church. It’s easy once you have done it once. And it all adds up.


Singing in the Choir

SINGERS WANTED! Come and give it a try! Really! Speak to Tony (choirmaster) and join us for our next choir practice.

Archivist needed

Our Parish is seventy years old this year. Over the years we have collected a fair amount of material that makes up the history of our Parish community. Photographs and video are constantly being added to this. We now need an ARCHIVIST to keep track of all this. This would mean gathering and organizing written records, pictures etc., digitizing this, organizing earthbound and cloud storage. Etc.

Children and Young People

If you think you could serve our children or young people by teaching, organising activities or food (whether that is weekly or only occasionally) then please speak to Lydia at church.


Adult Classes

Henry (Cuthbert) runs a group, teaching about aspects of our Church and its faith. If you would like to join, just ask him in church or email secretary@bristol-orthodox-church.org.uk. This group is open to teenagers and adults and runs spontaneously after Divine Liturgy. TEACHING PROGRAMME NOW UPLOADED! See here

Children’s Classes

Children’s classes have now finished for the summer holidays. Christina is sadly leaving us this summer – WE NEED PEOPLE TO HELP OUT! It is hugely important for the young members of our Parish to know their faith. For those wishing to enrol their child for Autumn term a £5 minimum donation is suggested. This funds stationary and supplies for the rest of the year. Money should be handed to Neil or Lydia. For first time enrollment, please e-mail (vice-president@bristol-orthodox-church.co.uk) with your child’s name(s) and age(s).

Join us on Facebook  Please write a review and add any photos.

The Food Bank is now open again in church with a new closable box. Please contribute anything you can to help those in need.
