Due to the extraordinary number of faithful coming to our Cathedral for worship due to the closure of their regular parishes during this time of pandemic, or the imposition of restrictions that otherwise make it impossible to attend their normal places of worship, the number of faithful wishing to attend our regular Divine Services has risen dramatically. While we strive to welcome everyone and provide a spiritual home for those requiring it in this difficult time, we must nevertheless make special efforts to control the numbers of worshippers at each scheduled service, so that we do not exceed the limits set by Government restrictions based on the need to maintain social distancing, etc. For this reason, please take special note of our revised schedule of regular Divine Services for Sunday mornings:
Welcome to the website of the London Russian Orthodox Church Abroad’s Cathedral of the Nativity Of the Most Holy Mother of God and the Royal Martyrs.
On this site can be found the schedule of services, and contact details of the clergy of the Cathedral.
The services are mainly held in Church Slavonic, (the liturgical language of the Russian Orthodox Church) with some parts in English. A sermon is preached at the Sunday Liturgy in Russian, with a simultaneous translation in English, or in English with a translation into Russian.
