British Orthodox Fellowship Handbook

This is the Handbook of the British Orthodox Fellowship. It has been published to help you experience something of the Orthodox faith and life of the British Orthodox Church whether you are a member of the British Orthodox Church, or of some other Christian community. Fundamentally, it is only by experiencing Orthodox faith and life for yourself that you will gain a personal appreciation of its power to transform the lives of British people.
