Orthodox Youth UK

The Fellowship has a thriving Youth Branch which has its own website.

The Youth Fellowship covers young (18-35ish!) Orthodox Christians who meet throughout the year to pray and have fellowship in order to better know the Faith and each other. They organise lots of different events so that everyone can be involved and make links with fellow Orthodox people.

They also maintain links with other Orthodox Youth organisations on an international level, such as Jeunesse Orthodoxe en France and Nepsis.

Find out more about their activities on the Youth Fellowship website:

  • annual Youth Festival (see below for previous themes)
  • pilgrimages and visits to monasteries
  • trips abroad
  • mountain climbing in Snowdonia
  • walks for men and walks for women based around a holy site in the UK
  • social events like ice skating

You can also check out their Facebook page.
