Throughout January and early February, His Grace Bishop Irenei, as part of his Theophany archpastoral visit to the Diocese, will lead a series of spiritual talks at the Diocesan Cathedral in Harvard Road. As is customary with Bishop Irenei's talks, these will not be 'lectures' or academic reflections, but practical talks focussed on the Church's authoritative teaching with regard to the Christian life.

Welcome to the web site of the Russian Orthodox Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland. We invite you to explore the host of information provided here, and above all to visit one of our parishes to join us in prayer to the Holy Trinity in a land where Holy Orthodoxy was introduced in Apostolic times.
