The Orthodox Eucharistic Community Of St Theodore Of Canterbury

Priest responsible: Archpriest Alexander Fostiropoulos



Service Times

Even though it still does not seem possible to make firm and definite long term plans, we plan to continue to celebrate the Liturgy at All Saints’ church, Military Road, Canterbury CT1 1PA, where we have been so warmly welcome since last autumn, on:

Saturday 25th September 2021 at 11.00 am
Saturday 23rd October 2021 at 11.00 am
Saturday 13th November 2021 at 11.00 am

These and any dates in subsequent 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 All Saints’ church for worship.

All Saints' church, where we are worshipping during the period of the pandemic, is located between the Sorting Office of the Royal Mail and the Canterbury City Council on Military Road, with ample on-street parking nearby.
