In Hackney, London, England, an Ethiopian Orthodox parish has been approved for a new church building.

From the article:
Along with being a place of worship, the parish aim to roll out a community plan that will include offering a place of sanctuary to disadvantaged and underachieving youths and those influenced by postcode and gang related crime, by providing positive role models to tackle these issues.  They intend to work with other organizations to achieve a common goal.

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

I texted one of the priests and he tells me it's true, praise God.

You may be interested to know that the liturgy has large chunks of English in it . The congregation is also mainly ( so far as I can tell) English speaking.
