Ethiopian Orthodox Church are in Residence.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church are in residence at St. Peter’s for their fortnight long celebration of the Feast of the Assumption. Some one will be present 24 hours a day over that period

As I opened the outer doors to St. Peter’s this morning, and before entering the body of the church, there was an awareness that something was different. Looking towards the east end, shafts of bright sunlight looked all but freestanding.

Since midnight presided over by a monk priest, who normally lives in Birmingham, a small congregation had worshipped and then taken time to rest in the ‘Long Room.’

As we arrived for morning prayer all was still, bar the rising incense and atmosphere of prayer.

St. Peter’s is still open to the general public – wanderer and seekers alike. The church seems even more calm than usual!!
