Church in England has new tenant: Orthodox parish
« on: November 07, 2011, 10:28:56 PM »
St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church began its parish life in Audley, England with just eight individuals. Now the congregation has moved to a building in Dresden which used to belong to the Church of England.

From the article:
Father Carter, aged 64, of Tittensor, said: "We contacted the Church of England which owns the building because our church in Audley was too small to host some services.

"It was a matter of finding the right church at the right time, even though it did take a long time to sort out the lease.

"We have had a large rise in congregation numbers."
