Services at Saint Ignatius of Antioch

Belfast, Northern Ireland

At the moment we do not have a resident Priest, we are prayerfully seeking a resident Priest for Saint Ignatius Of Antioch Orthodox church. Once a month Father David travels from Dublin to Belfast to serve the Liturgy on a Saturday, and Father John travels from Dublin to Belfast to serve Liturgy on a Sunday. When a Priest is not present we hold a Typika service on the Sunday. All services are in English.

The schedule of services in February and March are as follow:

*On weekends when there is no Divine Liturgy service, a lay-led service of Typika is usually served at 11.00am on the Sunday.  Please check by contacting William Hunter at or ring 07853308484 at weekends or after 6pm.
