In Dorset, the Orthodox community of St Edward, King and Martyr has been worshiping in the former Anglican church at Athelhampton for more than 20 years, during which time the little church has been lovingly tended and furnished for Orthodox worship.
Our Orthodox congregation consists of a variety of different nationalities – mainly English, but also including Welsh, Greek, Russian , Ukrainian, Romanian and Bulgarian. Regular members of our congregation come from a widespread area, including Yeovil, Blandford, Dorchester, Poole, Bournemouth, Fordingbridge, and Axminster.
All of our services are in English.
For the youngest members of our congregation we have a small area where they can quietly play, at the back of the church.
THE ORTHODOX DIVINE LITURGY IS SERVED EVERY SUNDAY AT 10:00 AM.
This may vary at Nativity (Christmas) and at Pascha (Easter), so please check at these times.
CONFESSIONS 15 minutes before the service, but please let Fr. David know in advance by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
