Orthodoxy in Oxford

I visited the Moscow Patriarchal church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker in Oxford today. It's just outside the main section of town and quite beautiful and peaceful, if not a grand building in terms of size. The Akathist/Moleben was well attended and a very good mix of the Slavic with the English. The flow was intelligible even to those without any Russian (as the people who travelled with me were) due the priest's seamless switching from language to language. This parish has near daily services so, if you are in the area, do go visit.
