Deanery Conference 2015 Report by Lisa von Schlippe

The annual Conference and Festival of the Deanery of Great Britain and Ireland took place as usual on the last weekend of May, from the evening of Friday 22nd May to lunchtime on Monday 25th May.  For the fourth year, it was held at a Christian Conference Centre to the north east of London.  We share the Centre with other groups, though we have our own appointed rooms for services, talks and workshops.

REPORT ON DEANERY CONFERENCE AND FESTIVAL
22-25 MAY 2015

Once more members of the Deanery gathered at High Leigh, greeting familiar faces and learning to know new ones.  Our theme was The Beauty of Holiness.  It was appropriate then that at the centre of our programme were Saturday's Vigil and the Liturgy on Sunday.  This year we had the joy of the presence of not only Archbishop Job but also Bishop John, who together concelebrated with 14 priests, a protodeacon and three deacons.  During the Liturgy the Archbishop ordained two candidates, firstly as acolytes then as Readers; one then went on to be ordained Subdeacon.

More info with a fuller version of these flyers, including details of the speakers, will be published soon.

Report on the Conference 2014 by James Heywood

Over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, the High Leigh Conference Centre resounded again and again to the best news ever heard in the world: “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death; and to those in the tombs he has given life!” The annual Deanery Conference brought together a wonderfully diverse crowd of Orthodox Christians from all over the country and from abroad, and the choir, made up of singers from many parishes under Anne-Marie de Visser’s direction, sang the Paschal troparion and the other Paschal hymns with extra gusto, knowing that it was the last weekend when they would sing them for another year.

Conference / Festival 2014 update

It is with great regret that I must inform you that Archbishop Job will not be able to attend the Conference/Festival 2014, because he has been required to accompany the Patriarch to Jerusalem.
There will therefore be no Liturgy on Monday and some adjustment to the programme will be made.

Father Patrick Hodson, Dean
