Service Ministry

The ministry of service and outreach is focused mainly on our immediate community, providing practical support to people in need on our university campus (a small city itself with 60,000 'residents') and the surrounding neighbourhood. It addresses itself to other marginalised communities—people who are hospitalised or shut in, in hospices, in prison, etc. Delivering service activities will involve working in partnership with other Orthodox parishes and/or other Christian churches and agencies. Current service projects include the establishment and development of Myrrhbearers Traditional Christian Burial Society and St Hermione Lay Pastoral Visitors programme.
