Welcome to the Diocese of the British Isles

We are a Western Rite Orthodox community who aim to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the Orthodox Church to the British People in a way that makes the best use of our own venerable heritage and apostolic tradition.


Centred at our new Cathedral Church in Dumfries, Scotland, we are a growing community with members from across the UK.

The Diocese of the British Isles is a constituent member of the International Synaxis of True Orthodox Churches.
