Joining the Orthodox Church

Who can become Orthodox?

Our Lord commanded us to ‘make disciples of all nations’ (Matthew 28:19). The Orthodox Church is open to everyone, regardless of age, sex, nationality, race, ethnicity, colour, or class. The only requirement is that you believe in Jesus Christ and recognise that membership of the Orthodox Church is membership of His Body, accepting the divinely revealed truths it has preserved for two thousand years through its teachings and practices.

How can I become Orthodox?

If you are interested in joining the Orthodox Church, please get in touch with us by telephoning the church office or sending us an e-mail. Reception into the Church must be preceded by a period of catechesis (religious instruction), the content and duration of which will depend on your prior knowledge and personal circumstances.
