Birmingham St. Stephens Indian Orthodox Church

England, United Kingdom

The St. Stephen's Indian Orthodox Church, Birmingham is the result of the vision and hard work of some orthodox members living in Birmingham area. The first spiritual gathering was a Prayer Meeting in February 2003 with few members which was followed by the first Holy Qurbana (Eucharist) on November 2nd 2003. Later in December 2007 The Congregation was officially declared as a Parish by the late Metropolitan Dr. Thomas Mar Makarios. Holy Qurbana has since been celebrated on the second and forth Sunday of every month. With fervent dedication of its members, the Parish has grown in number and in spiritual zeal over the years. Currently there are about 50 families. It was by God’s grace, that the Parish was able to purchase and consecrate a permanent place of worship in April 2019.

Since March 2020, more than 50 children attend regular Sunday School twice a month physically and on every Sunday through Zoom. Evening Prayers are also held via ZOOM on the second and forth Saturday evenings. Martha Mariam Vanitha Samajam lead a fasting prayer on the first Friday of every month with online prayer meeting held regularly. The Youth wing of the Parish engages regularly in Voluntary works, Classes on faith, personality development courses and other events.
