About Us

Our Cardiff parish of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God currently worships in St John’s Church, in Canton, where we worship each weekend.

We are a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), in the Diocese of Great Britain and Western Europe and serve a geographically scattered congregation stretching from Herefordshire to Pembrokshire: a parish in two countries!

We are a warm and welcoming multi-national community of Orthodox Slavs and British people. We aim to live 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.

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

We welcome everyone to our services, and encourage new-comers to stay for a chat and meet the clergy and parishioners. Though we are unable to hold our customary Sunday parish lunch at the moment, we look forward to being able to share meals and spend social time together.

Don’t be shy, come in and stay for as long as your able; say a prayer; light a candle; come and say hello. If you need help, just ask a member of the congregation and they will be pleased to help. Children are a very important part of our community and they also enjoy taking part in our services.
