Annual Conference of the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius

Location

Ripon College
Cuddesdon
United Kingdom
Wednesday, August 16, 2017 to Friday, August 18, 2017

The Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius came into being as the result of several events which were indirect consequences of the Russian Revolution of 1917. Over the years that followed the Bolshevik revolution, large numbers of Russians, many of them young and forthright Orthodox Christians, left Russia and came to live in the countries of western Europe, especially France, as refugees. Here they came into contact with other Christian denominations that many of them had only read about, or had very limited contact with, in Russia.

Based in Oxford, England, the Fellowship operates with the blessing of the local Orthodox hierarchs, and with the approval of the Anglican and Roman Catholic authorities.
