“Orthodoxy in the British Islands,” a new documentary written by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, just premiered on the Rossiya-Kultura TV channel in Russia.

According to a press release, the “film recounts the history of Orthodoxy in the British Islands, conversion of the archipelago’s peoples to Christianity, development of Christian churches there before the division between East and West and today’s state of the Orthodox Church in Great Britain.”

It also includes interviews with various bishops, priests, and parishioners about “their difficult path back to their spiritual sources, which is Orthodoxy.”

The documentary includes coverage of some of the most well known Orthodox figures in Britain, including Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh, Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov, and Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokletia.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
