St Anargyre Fellowship was an initiative of the priest father Chrysostom with some of the younger parishioners in 2014. Initially, the gatherings took place at St Anargyre House, once a month. Later on, the fellowship grew in numbers and moved to the Church Hall. Everyone is welcome to participate and all member share their common spiritual values, caring for our community, and opening up to the challenges of contemporary life.


The meetings take place on the last Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm and the themes vary from issues of our Orthodox tradition and life which are discussed by the group, to contemporary challenges of life, and sometimes excursions or screenings of a movie. External speakers have been invited too. Members are welcome to introduce their own themes and questions too.





Tο Σάββατο 19 Οκτωβρίου 2019, η νεανική συντροφιά του Ναού των Αγίων Αναργύρων πραγματοποίησε προσκύνημα στην Οξφόρδη, τόπο βιοτής της Αγίας, αρχίζοντας από το αγίασμα της Αγίας (St Margaret᾽s well, Binsey), εξω από την πόλη της Οξφόρδης, όπου κατά παράδοση μόνασε, και κατόπιν στο κολλέγιο Christ Church όπου ίσταται το κενοτάφιο της Αγίας. Μετείχε στις εκδηλώσεις που πραγματοποιήθηκαν εντός του Καθεδρικού ναού του Κολλεγίου από ευσεβείς χριστιανούς άλλων ομολογιών, και με αυτόν τον τρόπο πλούτισε με Ορθόδοξο χαρακτήρα τον εορτασμό και τιμή της Αγίας. Η συντροφιά παρήγγειλε μία θαυμάσια εικόνα της Αγίας, η οποία κοσμεί τον Ναό των Αγίων Αναργύρων (



Στις 17 Απριλίου 2021 η ενορίτισσα κ. Νίκη Χριστοφή παρέδωσε μαθήματα προπαρασκευής του πρόσφορου για την θεία λειτουργία στην αίθουσα του Ναού, με την παραδοσιακή μέθοδο ανάμιξης του αλευριού με προζύμι (ζύμη με συμβιωτική καλλιέργεια διάφορων βακίλλων και μυκήτων). Συμμετείχαν πολλά μέλη της Συντροφιάς των Αγίων Αναργύρων, σε μία διαδικασία η οποία διήρκησε αρκετές ώρες έως και την ανύψωση του ζυμωμένου άρτου κάτω από την επίδραση του προζυμωμένου υλικού. Η εκδήλωση ήταν πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα και μέλη της συντροφιάς δοκίμασαν κατόπιν την παρασκευή του δικού τους άρτου.  





Many members of St Anargyre Fellowship on Monday 29, May 2023, undertook a pilgrimage to the old Anglo-Saxon shrine of Little Walsingham with history down to the 11h century. We visited firstly the nice Chapel of St Seraphim of Sarov (lived in Russia in the 18th century) converted from an old local railway station in the '60s. We venerated the icons of this nice chapel and sang part of the Paraklesis to St Seraphim. In the end, we shared some thoughts about his life and message to the modern world, such as that, 'the purpose of the Christian life is the acquisition of the Holy Spirit' and, "acquire a peaceful spirit, and thousands around you will be saved.". We had our brunch altogether at the nice gardens outside the Chapel.

Afterwards the fellowship headed towards the Anglican Shrine and Church of Annunciation of Holy Mary, through picturesque buildings of the village with unique for the area architectural features. At the upper floor of this Church we visited a picturesque small Orthodox chapel dedicated to the Dormition of Theotokos, indicating the common history and life of the united Christian Church within nine centuries before the Schism and the respect from the Anglican tradition to these common orthodox roots.

At the entrance of the nearest village of Great Walsingham we visited another Orthodox Church of the area, the Church of Christ's Transfiguration, under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Thyateira.

The last destination was the historic Norwich Cathedral and the Church of St Julian, a local saint and anchoress, at walking distance from Norwich Cathedral. Both Churches were worth-seeing and the appreciation to the Orthodox iconography was evident, as we noticed two Orthodox icons within these premises of Anglican tradition. 

The life of St Julian (14th century) is an exceptional paradigm of devotion to God and direct experience of the Grace of the Holy Spirit, similar to the experience of all the Saints. It is worth mentioning amongst her spiritual sayings that, "God is nearer to us than our own soul". She also experienced that Christ is not only our God but also 'a mother' to all Christians. This latter experience is aligned with St Seraphim of Sarov's advice to the spiritual fathers, that they should behave 'like good mothers' to their faithful folk and spiritual children.
