 The Divine Liturgy is usually celebrated every Sunday  at 10 am in the Church of St Aidan and St Chad, Nottingham, however this will be replaced by a Typica for the remaining Sundays in August whilst our priest takes a well earned holiday!. There will be a vigil service on the first Saturday of each month. Please check the calendar for additional services and events.

Please note that the calendar includes events from both parishes at all venues. The calendar also includes details of feast days even if no services are planned. Please click on the calendar entry to obtain full details  of the event, time and venue.

The floor of the sanctuary of our church now requires replacement and, as this will be very costly we have started a special appeal for funds to cover this expense:

Online donations can be made on our Everyclick

For anyone wishing to learn more about the Orthodox faith, there is an "Exploring Orthodoxy" meeting, led by Reader Paul, which meets straight after Vespers at the Church of St Aidan and St Chad each Saturday, except on the first Saturday of each month when there is a vigil service..

These meetings open to all Orthodox and non-Orthodox who wish to deepen their understanding of the faith.

On the Second Friday of each month there will be an Akathist service at 7pm. We hold a parish supper on the last Friday of each month, beginning at 7 pm with prayers, then confessions, a bring and share supper, and a group discussion about an aspect of our Faith.

There is normally a parish lunch after the liturgy on the first Sunday of each month.
