Introduction to Holy Orthodoxy: Faith & Life

A basic course of instruction in the faith, life and
traditions of Holy Orthodoxy for catechumens
and inquirers. Sessions will be held fortnightly in
St Martin’s Church, commencing at 1:30pm (after
coffee hour following Holy Liturgy) on Sunday 21
May: the Feast of St Constantine & St Helen.
Please bring lunch if you wish; sessions will be
approximately 1 hour long, with time for
questions and discussion.

This course aims to provide a
basic introduction to the Orthodox
Faith; our beliefs and way of life.
As we move through each topic we
will discuss how the individual
encounters our rich and ancient
faith and may find their true life in
Christ within the timeless faith and
practice of the Orthodox Church.
The course is suitable for anybody
who wishes to become Orthodox
or for those who are already
Orthodox and wish to learn more
about and deepen their faith
