The Divine Liturgy is celebrated in our church every Sunday. Our parish normally leads the services according to the Russian Tradition on the second and the fourth Saturdays and Sundays of the month when the Vigil and the Liturgy are celebrated mainly in English and Slavonic respectively. We also use some Romanian and Greek in our services.

Welcome to our community!

Our parish is part of the worldwide Orthodox Church under Archbishop Job of Telmessos. We belong to the Deanery of Great Britain and Ireland , within the Archdiocese of Orthodox Parishes of Russian Tradition in Western Europe, an Exarchate of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

Our parish essentially follows the Russian Liturgical Tradition. We are of diverse Orthodox backgrounds, including Russian, British, Romanian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, and Polish. We have worshipped together for about 40 years with the Greek Orthodox Community of the Holy Trinity (a parish under the jurisdiction of Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira & Great Britain - Ecumenical Patriarchate) in the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation and the Holy Trinity, at 1 Canterbury Rd, Oxford.

The Divine Liturgy is celebrated in our church every Sunday. The Annunciation parish leads the services according to the Russian Tradition on the second and the fourth weekends of the month when the Vigil and the Liturgy are celebrated mainly in English and Slavonic. We also use some Romanian and Greek in our services. See the Schedule of Services for more details. The new schedule of services from February to August is now posted there.
