Study Weekends

About Study Weekends

Our study weekends are held annually. Usually, they are an opportunity to make a detailed study of one aspect of the Bible, or of a theme in the Fathers. Each year alternates between a biblical theme or a patristic one. Speakers with expertise in the field are invited to share their knowledge on the topic. They are friendly events and not designed to be too intellectual or academic.

More than that, though, study weekends are an opportunity to get to know another parish, where you will be warmly welcomed and hosted by that community. You will find out about their parish, their local area and community, and most study weekends have opportunities to visit sites of local interest. They can also include brief excursions or pilgrimages. Some parishes choose to host guests too, and usually some meals are provided (check your booking carefully – as this varies depending on the host).

At our study weekends people form lifelong friendships with fellow Orthodox Christians in other parts of the country, and also come away with their spiritual batteries recharged.
