The British Orthodox Church

The British Orthodox Church

within the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate

    Welcome to The British Orthodox Church website

    The British Orthodox Church is a small Orthodox jurisdiction, canonically part of the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria. Our mission is to the people of the British Isles, and though we are completely Orthodox in our faith and practice we remain British in our ethos and in our appreciation of the Orthodox heritage of these islands.

    The British Orthodox Church was originally established in 1866 when a Frenchman, Jules Ferrette, was consecrated as a bishop by the Syrian Orthodox Church with the purpose of re-establishing Orthodoxy to the West.

    Discover the Orthodox Faith for yourself

    The mission of the British Orthodox Church within the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate is to share the good news of the Orthodox Faith with British people in their own culture.

    We have launched the British Orthodox Fellowship, so that our many friends and enquirers can join a community supported by the life of the British Orthodox Church.

    Our aim is to help British people discover that they can be authentically and canonically Orthodox while remaining genuinely British. But we also warmly welcome all who wish to worship and learn with us, whatever their culture.
