In Bentham, England, a Russian Orthodox congregation will hold a service at a Greek Orthodox parish. The event will take place Nov. 5.

From the article:
Father Vladimir Vilgerts, rector of the church's cathedral in London, will lead the service, which will include ancient Russian chants.

He said: "It is especially rewarding that so many people from a range of Christian backgrounds have expressed interest in our community here in Gloucestershire."

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Good to see.  Shouldn't be abnormal, but I suppose it is a bit.

When the Kursk Root Icon toured last year, the ROCOR folks did a joint vigil with the Greeks at my parish.  It was seamless and great, but "my folk" later complained about how crowded it was and the length of the service.  At least it was a reminder that there are other Orthodox peoples, and that some universality exists.
