Back in 2009, our Church had a growing number of Theological enquirers. It was clear that a new way of allowing people to discover Orthodoxy was urgently needed. An Orthodox Fellowship was the answer. It is a dispersed community of friends, enquirers and members of the Orthodox Church, who are united in their desire to discover how the Orthodox Faith can help them develop and deepen their Christian life.
Anyone with a genuine interest in Orthodoxy can join the Saint Nicholas’ Orthodox Fellowship. The Fellowship will organise pilgrimages to holy places such as our local Monasteries here in Sydney as well as interstate. The Orthodox Fellowship is a means of allowing ordinary young people to experience the faith and spirituality of the Orthodox Christian Church Tradition.
The Orthodox Fellowship is a ministry of the Orthodox Church. We are committed to helping our youth find out more about our Faith in whatever ways are most appropriate for their own circumstances. We hope that you will take this opportunity of joining our Orthodox Fellowship and exploring the Orthodox Faith with us in a friendly, relaxed, safe and fun atmosphere.
We have also been able to organise a number of events to which Fellowship members and friends have been invited. These have included English Liturgies led by our own Parish Priest and our very own bilingual youth choir, Bible study evenings, Talks on a range of related topics and social activity days/nights.
Through the coming year we hope to organise many such similar events, and also develop the Orthodox Fellowship in association with the broader Church community.
How can you Help?
All that we ask of a member is that they pray for the work of the Orthodox Fellowship, for all of the other members, and for a growth in the understanding and experience of the Orthodox Faith in Australia.
We hope that you would like to take up some of the opportunities, which our Fellowship provides, in order to experience Orthodox Christianity. We also respect everyone’s circumstances and understand that every individual is on their our own unique spiritual pilgrimage.
We hope that you will take up this offer in joining the Fellowship with us, together with exploring our Orthodox Christian Faith.
If you have any questions about the Fellowship, please contact our parish priest
