ANNUAL CONFERENCE

May 26th - 28th, 2017

 

'The Unity of the Church'


The Annual Conference is a long-established tradition of the Diocese of Sourozh which provides a unique opportunity for people to gather in prayer, fellowship and fruitful discourse. It is a weekend away, open to all members of the Russian Orthodox Church in Great Britain and Ireland. 

‘When the most High came down and confused the tongues, He divided the nations; But when he distributed the tongues of fire He called all to unity. Therefore, with one voice, we glorify the All-holy Spirit!’ (Kontakion of Pentecost)

The unity of the Church is founded on the calling and gift of the Triune God. It should be apparent at every level of the Church's life, from the smallest community where ‘two or three are gathered together’ to the Communion in faith and life of the Local Orthodox Churches. Unity is manifested where human divisions, whether personal, social or ethnic, are overcome through incorporation into the body of Christ. Our conference will explore the nature of unity and the obstacles to it in a series of talks, seminars and group discussions. There will be a programme for children related to the theme of the conference. As always, our common prayer, together with our bishop and clergy, will be at the heart of our time together.


Invited speakers incude:


Hieromonk Nikolai (Sakharov), Archpriest Andrew Louth, Dr Paula Nicholson.

Talks will be given in English or Russian, with translation. The draft conference timetable is available on the Programme & Timetable page of this site.

The cost of the weekend ranges from £125 to £160  depending on the type of accommodation selected and includes all meals. Non-residential attendance is also possible.
