Membership in the Fellowship of St Alban and St Sergius is open to any Christian who wishes to pray and work for the deeper understanding and closer cooperation between Christians of East and West, and who is a communicant member of a recognised church. Members are expected to pray regularly for the Fellowship and its work, and to play as full a part as they can in its life.

  • 1. Their own printed copy of our journal Sobornost, incorporating Eastern Churches Review, published twice a year, containing important articles, reports, news items and book reviews, all with relevance to those interested in the life of the Eastern Churches and their relationship to the Churches of the West.

  • 2. The Fellowship's newsletter, published several times a year, with information about our activities, pilgrimages, conferences and other events to which members are admitted, together with items of news and topical interest.

St Alban & St Sergius

Based in Oxford, England, the Fellowship operates with the blessing of the local Orthodox hierarchs, and with the approval of the Anglican and Roman Catholic authorities. Our Patrons are:

His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain (Ecumenical Patriarchate)

The Most Revd and Rt Honorable Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

His Eminence Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia (Ecumenical Patriarchate)

The Right Reverend and Right Honourable Dr Richard Chartres (the Bishop of London)

His Eminence Archbishop Elisey of Sourozh (Patriarchate of Moscow)

Dr Sebastian Brock, FBA

In addition to its other activities, the Fellowship maintains an information service for those seeking to know about the Orthodox Church both in Great Britain and throughout the world. Enquiries may be sent by post, telephone, or e-mail. We also maintain an unusual collection of books and periodicals on subjects relating to the Eastern Churches which our members may use.

The Fellowship makes a number of grants each year to groups and projects which operate in accord with its aims. Through our sponsorship of a wide range of church-related activities throughout the world, we are able to form new contacts between Orthodox and other Christians.

In addition, we have our own programme of activities in several Orthodox countries, including Greece, Russia, Serbia and Romania. These include publications, conferences and exchange visits.
