A guide to the Orthodox Church services held each week in Cardiff

Important News – Public Services

Public services are being celebrated each week and we currently worship in the Church of St John the Evangelist, St John’s Crescent, Canton, CF5 1NX. The Hours start at 10:40 and Divine Liturgy beginning at 11:00. St John’s is our temporary home, whilst the University Church at Nazareth House remains closed due to Covid restrictions.

Those wishing to attend the Liturgy with a view to receiving Holy Communion should email/text Father Deacon Mark BY THURSDAY each week so as to arrange a time for confession and to let us know you will be joining us at Liturgy.

14/09/2020 – Welsh government Laws on Face coverings require those attending public services to wear a face covering unless they have a reasonable excuse for not wearing one. Further information can be found in our risk assessment using the link below

Readings and variables can be found here or here to incorporate into your personal prayers at home.

Currently because of the later start of Liturgy on the Sunday confessions should be made on Saturday each week. There is very limited time before the Liturgy to confess people and so we reserve these times for people travelling to Cardiff from afar or those who work on Saturday.

If you would like to arrange a confession please contact Father Deacon Mark by email or phone.
