Visit the Portsmouth Mission


The Coptic Orthodox Community of St Mary and St Moses in Portsmouth worships at the church of St Mark. Thanks to the hospitality of the local Anglican minister and congregation, we are able to use it for our Orthodox liturgy. The services are supported by Father Simon Smyth, Father Peter Farrington, Deacon Antony and local deacons. In September the monthly celebration of the Liturgy will be increased to twice a month.
