Welcome to the Russian Orthodox Parish of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, in Cardiff: an Orthodox community formed in the Welsh capital in 2010.

Embracing the Orthodox legacy of these lands and blessed by the intercessions of the host of local Saints, our community shares the rich treasures of Orthodox Christianity with people of diverse nationality, language, age and race into the life of the Gospel that has been proclaimed in our Church for more than 2,000 years.

Our services are held in a mixture of English and Church Slavonic (the liturgical language of the Russian Orthodox Church).
