In addition to the annual youth festival, we aim to organise several small events throughout the year. More information about specific events will be shared on the homepage as they draw near. Apart from that, you can also expect some one-off events, for example pilgrimages. If you would like to organise an event like that locally under our banner, please do get in touch with us!
The main event of year, the youth festival is a 3-4 day long gathering of young Orthodox Christians. It usually takes place during the second May bank holiday weekend. You can expect talks by priests, monks and nuns on an interesting topic while you are surrounded by nature. Apart from the talks, there is morning and evening worship, Divine Liturgy on Sunday, walks, games and worshops, all of which you can take part in.
We head to the Welsh mountains (Brecon Beacons/Snowdonia) for 2-3 days, staying in a nice mountain cottage and hiking. We typically split into two groups for the day, with an easier and more challenging hike available and then reconvene in the afternoon for some shared time together.
We meet up for a day, typically in a parish hall in London. There is often a church service, a talk by the resident priest and we share food and socialise. Feel free to bring along a musical instrument if you want! It often takes place in late October or early November.
Head out with us to the Christmas markets to enjoy some ice-skating and a warm hearty meal afterwards (might include mulled wine). Fuzzy feelings of warmth and friendship are forecasted.
Similarly to the autumn meetup, we get togheter for a day, typically in a parish hall in London. There is often a church service, a talk by the resident priest and we share food and socialise. Feel free to bring along a musical instrument if you want! It often takes place in late March or early April.
