English Liturgies


Orthodoxy in the West is increasing rapidly, where converts are constantly introduced to this ancient Church. This creates new issues but also opportunities for the furtherance of the development of the Orthodox Church, worldwide. One feature evident now in the Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain, which is under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and caters mainly for the Greek population in the UK (however, people from all around the Orthodox World practice their faith in the Churches under the Thyateira jurisdiction, which is the largest Orthodox Archdiocese in the British Isles) is the fact that English Liturgies are celebrated in many Churches around the country.


Here is a list of the Churches and certain calendar detail on when the Liturgy is celebrated in English, taken from the site of the Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain (http://www.thyateira.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=310&Itemid=35):
