 Orthodoxy 

 The Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia of North  and South America and the British Isles 

Welcome to the British website of the Autonomous Orthodox Metropolia of North and South America and the British Isles.

We are a Western Rite Orthodox community, who celebrate according to the Use of Sarum. We aim to bring Orthodoxy to the British People in a way that makes the best use of our own venerable heritage and apostolic traditions.

THE SARUM RITE
The ancient liturgy of the British People

Western Rite Orthodoxy stands as a beacon of the timeless beauty of traditional liturgy, offering to all a firm place in the Apostolic Church where their venerable liturgical and aesthetic patrimony is alive and well.
