1979 was the year that
- Margaret Thatcher became the first female Prime Minister.
- McDonald’s introduced the Happy Meal
- Sony launched the Walkman
- Philips demonstrated their new “Compact Disk” or CD
- Elton John was the first westerner to perform in the USSR
- Mother Theresa won the Nobel Peace Prize
- The Dukes of Hazard were topping the TV shows and
- Dustin Hoffman & Meryl Streep starred in Kramer vs Kramer
It was also the year that the Fellowship of Saint John the Baptist was founded to bring together English speaking Orthodox in the UK.
Next year, 2019, the Fellowship Celebrates Forty Years!
As well as holding a fun, fortieth, family festival in the Summer- we’d also like to produce a special 40 years anniversary edition of Forerunner.
So if you have photos, memories or anecdotes of the Fellowship in the last 40, 30 or even 10 years, please share them with us!
Also, for those of us who weren’t even born 40 years ago – what is your vision for the next 40 years?

Welcome to our new website! We hope you like it so far.
We have been working on a few changes and hope to have lots more content and information for you by the end of the summer.
Meanwhile, here are some of our latest updates
We have a new Videos page
At the moment we only have content from our 2013 and 2014 Study Weekends, but hope to add more from upcoming events.
Also, we now have an archive vault for Forerunner. It contains previous issues of Forerunner and other articles of interest.
We have also updated the Youth Page and think you will enjoy the Mosaic Choir‘s YouTube Channel
