Priest responsible: Archpriest Alexander Fostiropoulos

Location: the Church of St. Mary The Virgin in Lamberhurst Kent TN3 8DT

Service Times

Following the Government’s plan for easing restrictions due to the pandemic, we have considered returning once again to our communal worship. Although it still does not seem possible to make firm and definite long term plans, aware that the seasons of Great Lent and Easter are approaching, we plan to celebrate the Liturgy at St Mary’s church on:

Saturday 17th April 2021 at 11.00 am
and
Saturday 22nd May 2021 at 11.00 am

These and any dates in subsquent months, inevitably, remain subject to possible change as the pandemic situation in the country develops. Of course, we shall follow all the agreed guidelines and protocols whenever we use Saint Mary’s church for worship.

As we approach the season of Great Lent, we continue to pray that our God, in His great mercy, will guide and protect everyone!

St Mary the Virgin, LamberhurstInformation: Our venue, the church of St Mary The Virgin is in Lamberhurst south of Tunbridge Wells on the A21. There is now a bypass and if you are going south you will reach the roundabout on the A21 where the bypass begins. Go right here into Lamberhurst and the church will be found up Church Road which is the first left as you come down into Lamberhurst. If coming into Lamberhurst from the south go into the village up the main street and turn right into Church Road at the top of the hill. If you reach the roundabout you have gone too far.

 The Community is part of the worldwide Orthodox Church, and its services are celebrated mainly in English, with some prayers in church Slavonic and Greek as our members represent a diversity of cultures and language Members of all Christian communities are most welcome to attend our services, and to share in (bring and share) refreshments afterwards.
