My Story

The church of Archangel Gabriel in Glasgow has become a very precious part of my life and I want to help it grow and flourish. It’s a place where everyone is welcomed, where they always serve others with joy and approach everything with a desire to provide help and support with love and faith. This church always gives people hope by seeing in them the very best, which they may not even see themselves. Of course, it is also a community in which people can pray together, serve the Lord together and help each other. The parish is constantly growing; new people appear and join with completely different backgrounds, beliefs, faiths, nationalities and social standings from all over the world. It does not matter who you are or where you are from, in this Parish a person feels that they are welcome and accepted. As we would like to keep growing to expand our ability to help more people, the dream has now become to be able to move into a larger space, where we will be able to continue our ministry.
Thanks to this community, I was able to rediscover the Orthodox Church for myself and with it, find myself a home in Christianity. Due to the pandemic, I can’t visit Scotland and see my friends like I normally would, but this is an opportunity for me to take part in the virtual kilt walk and support our parish from abroad. Even though we cannot walk together this year in person, we can walk together virtually with the Saints who are always with us and rediscover the Christian history of these lands. Join me this Kiltwalk as we take a trip through sketches with the Celtic Saints to their Holy places.
Every donation is very much appreciated, thank you!

We've created this team because we want to raise money and make a difference by participating in Edinburgh Kiltwalk 2020.

Orthodox Christianity is an important part of the history of this country. It may not be known to many, but Scotland has a large number of Orthodox saints, some are very well known (think St Ninian, St Mungo, St Blane, St Theneva, and St Serf for example).
St Ninian was the forerunner of the Celtic Church in the British Isles. After his ordination in Rome, he returned to Scotland where he established a monastery. The roots of Celtic monasticism are found in the lives of the Desert Fathers and Desert Mothers. Celtic Christians called from the world to live as monks and nuns followed their forebears into their own 'deserts', desiring separate and radical lives of prayer. St Patrick became a beacon of light in the West as well as St Columba.

Scotland is full of Orthodox pilgrimage sites that bear witness to the Orthodox Christian faith that used to be alive here in Scotland and throughout Ireland and Britain. High crosses can be found all over Scotland and are carved with Bible stories testifying symbolically to the mystery of the faith.

The Church of the Archangel Gabriel is a place where everyone can connect with the rich Tradition of Orthodoxy and its local ancestors. We celebrate Divine Liturgy and serve all our services in English. We also have life-sized icons of Celtic Saints gracing the walls of our chapel.

We have now outgrown the space and we desperately need a bigger building. There are several potential buildings that can serve this purpose. We also need money to help us set up an Orthodox youth association as there is a big need for this.

We want to continue to be able to live our faith and share it with all who are interested. We want to continue to support our local community and aid the young members of our parish. Every donation is appreciated.
