Dear Neil,

What can you expect at St Albans, Chatham? You can expect a small congregation in a small Church - despised and put down as monphysite (just like the British Orthodox Church in Bournemouth where I serve as priest). You can expect two dedicated clergy in Father Peter and subdeacon Michael. You can expect the Divine Liturgy of Saint James in English, in a British cultural setting - you can expect a British Church that is Orthodox and an Orthodox Church that is British. You can expcet to encounter the Holy Trinity and to worship amidst the saints and angels. You can also expect a friendly and warm and loving welcome though if they are already into the prayers this may have to wait until afterwards. And you can expect true Christology, not monophysitism. We don't go in for monophysitism anymore than we go in for exclusivity and unfriendliness!

But perhaps I've said far too much - for I remember what my father always used to say, "He who expecteth nothing is never disappointed!"
