Welcome to the site of the Orthodox Church and Community in Durham
Welcome to the site of the Orthodox Community of St Cuthbert and St Bede in Durham (UK).
We are a mixed community under the pastoral care of Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira (Ecumenical Patriarchate), Bishop Matthew of Sourozh (Moscow Patriarchate), and Metropolitan Iosif (Romanian Patriarchate).
Our worship is strengthened by the prayers of Christians from different Orthodox backgrounds, including English, Greek, Romanian, Russian, German, Bulgarian, Georgian and Polish Orthodox Christians, as well as guests from other churches. We celebrate mainly in English, with hymns and readings also in Greek, Romanian and Slavonic.
