About Us

The Cardiff parish of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, based at the University Church at Nazareth House, serves a geographically scattered congregation stretching from Herefordshire to Pembrokshire: a parish in 2 countries !

We are a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) in the Diocese of Great Britain and Western Europe (ROCOR).

A warm and welcoming multi-national community of Orthodox Slavs and British people, living our spiritual lives according to the rich and beautiful traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church, whilst devoted to the British saints and the ancient Orthodox legacy of our land.

Our services are celebrated in Church Slavonic and English, according to the Traditions of the pre-revolutionary Russian Orthodox Church and the Patristic Julian calendar.

Everyone who walks through the door and up the stairs to the University Church is always very welcome, not only to our services but also to our shared lunch each Sunday. Dont be shy, come in and stay for as long as you can; say a prayer; light a candle; come and say hello, have a chat, and join our meal. Children are a very important part of our community and they also enjoy taking part in our services.
