Updates & Parish Support Coronavirus

Latest Update

7 April 2020

During these challenging times, we are all yearning to be at church, especially as we approach Holy Pascha week and the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. As with all church services that we have been able to deliver online, Holy Week Services will be delivered electronically so that we can all receive the blessings of the Lord’s passion. More details below.

In light of the unprecedented crisis we are all facing with the Coronavirus outbreak, the heightened risk of to life that gatherings pose, and the escalation of measures by Public Health England, it is with a heavy heart that the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of London will temporarily be conducting Liturgies without congregations, and with a priest and a small number of deacons.
