HOW CAN WE IN THIS PARISH HELP THE UKRAINIANS?
1. We are collecting money to send to a charity based in Satu Mare, a town in north Romania near the border where refugees from Ukraine are gathering. It is Asociatia Parinti pentru Copii (The Parents for Children Association); we understand that it has been working with Ukrainian refugees for several years and is well known to one of our parishioners. Please put donations made out to Black Country Orthodox Trust (in completed Gift Aid envelopes if you pay tax) in the marked box in the
2. Nash Dom CIC, an organisation which helps East Europeans living in this area, is based close to the church in Sun Street. We can support their work for the refugees in these ways:
a. To donate goods needed by the refugees for transporting to the borders of Ukraine, probably Slovakia. The types of goods required are limited and are listed on the website below. The goods should be delivered between 10am and 4pm from Monday to Saturday to their centre in Sun Street WS1 4AL (from the church down the path between the schools, but note that by car the centre must be approached from Milton Street WS1 4AH).
b. They would welcome volunteers to help with sorting and packing the goods between these hours.

We are an Orthodox church in the Archdiocese of Thyateira under the Ecumenical patriarchate. The parish was established in the year 2000, when the late Archbishop Gregorios visited and gave his blessing for us to negotiate the purchase of the church building and the former vicarage from the Anglican Church. The main services are in English and we use the traditional byzantine chant. As an Orthodox Church, we welcome Orthodox Christians of whatever background. We celebrate weddings, baptisms, funerals, house blessings and other prayers and services in whatever language is most suitable for the families and communities concerned.: English, Greek, Romanian, Slavonic.
