hi, i'm british too (sort of, well i am writing this sitting on a floor cushion using a low table, so maybe not very british).
there are lots of orthodox churches in the uk, maybe we can make a list of the different types?
i am coptic, and i have friends who are british orthodox, armenian orthodox and antiochian.
i went to a russian orthodox church once in prague, it was really lovely. by some arrangement of God, i found someone who i could speak to at the end of the service, so i could speak to the kind priest, as i didn't speak russian.
there are about 30 coptic churches in uk and ireland, i loose count as there are new churches being opened all the time.
it's great to 'meet' you, may God bless you as you learn and share your faith.
p.s. mabsoota means 'happy (female)' in arabic, lots of people in my church speak arabic.
