I had no idea about it. Which ones? Do they use the Gregorian calendar, the Julian Revised or yet another (their own) one?

I believe that the British Orthodox Church uses a Revised Coptic calendar, basically having done the same thing to the Coptic calendar that the New Calendarist EO did to the Julian Calendar.

The Syriac Orthodox Church (and its Jacobite Syrian Christian Church) as well as the "Indian Orthodox Church" actually use the Gregorian calendar.

And it seems like the Catholicosate of Etchmiadzin uses the Gregorian calendar for most of its determinations, though with the fluidity of the Armenian calendar.

I would like to clarify that my statement about the Syriac Orthodox was not entirely correct (as I have since learned). Indeed, the Malankarese Catholicosate of the SOC uses the full Gregorian calendar. However, in the main, non-Indian part of the SOC, there is rather used an equivalent of the Revised Julian calendar, rather than of the full Gregorian calendar (the only exception being the Archdiocese of Jerusalem which is still on the full old calendar).

And I would like some clarification on the calendar of the British Orthodox.

I have heard conflicting claims that they use a fully Gregorianized form of the Coptic calendar on one hand, and on the other hand that it is only revised so far as the Revised Julian calendar, retaining the old Paschalion.

I am not sure that there are conflicting claims about the British Orthodox calendar. It is quite straightforward.

We use the Western dating for the fixed calendar of feasts, and the Coptic calendar for the Paschal cycle. So we kept the Feast of the Nativity a couple of weeks ago, and have just kept the Feast of Epiphany.

Father, I have heard from 2 or 3 sources claiming that you supposedly use the full Gregorian calendar. I didn't believe it because I had heard several times before that that you used a Revised Coptic calendar, but nonetheless I can assure you the perception is out there.
