About Us

We are a Parish within the Diocese of Sourozh, Moscow Patriarchate. The Diocese in this country was founded by Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) of blessed memory. The diocese is headed by Archbishop Elisey of Sourozh. Our priest in charge is Archpriest Michael Gogoleff, tel: 01225-858-792.

We are a multi-ethnic community and Orthodox Christians from various nationalities worship with us. Our services are in English and Russian (Church Slavonic) and we follow the old calendar. The services may be attended by anyone who is interested, although only Orthodox Christians may receive Holy Communion at the Divine Liturgy.

Here you can find the current schedule of the services. For further information contact Elya Kisina 0117 9140282, Masha Springford 0117-973-5037, Galina Self 0117-373-0631

Welcome to our Parish!

Appeal to parisheners: This year our traditional Christmas Bazaar will be held at St Augustine of Canterbury Church, Boscombe Crescent, Downend, BS16 6QR on Saturday 2 December. The Parish Council invites all parish members to do what they can to help with preparing and conducting the bazaar. Please bring things for sale to the Church at times of service and speak to the secretary Elya Kisina or parish warden Masha Springford about ways in which you can help.

Fundraising for a new church.

We continue to raise money in order to buy our own church. We are not a big parish and people are giving generously what they can afford, but we mainly rely on the help of friends. This is our objective. In the meantime, until we find something suitable to buy, we hope to move from Frenchey and, as a temporary solution, to rent another place closer to the centre, where we can leave all the things we need for our services.

Please help to collect the money.

Let God help us in our efforts!
