Stalham Orthodox chapel welcome bishop to service at former police station building
A tiny Orthodox Christian congregation welcomed their bishop to a service at their new chapel in a former north Norfolk police station.
St Fursey's, an Orthodox Christian community, who used to worship in a tiny church built in their priest's back garden, celebrated the Eucharist at a service led by the head of their church, on Sunday, February 10.
Bishop Silouan, who is the head of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian church, visited the church, now based at the former police station in Stalham, and led by Father Stephen Weston, to bless the building.
Reader William Harrison said the bishop's visit was enjoyed by the church, and added: 'Especially because it's such a small congregation - there are only 15-20 of us.'
The congregation moved into the Rivermead building, in Stalham, at the end of last year, where they plan to grow the congregation.
