Church of St. Edward the Martyr, Brookwood

St. Edward the Martyr Orthodox Church is a True Orthodox Church in Brookwood, Surrey, England.

The monastic Saint Edward Brotherhood was established at Brookwood Cemetery in 1982 to prepare and care for a new Church in a fitting grade I landscape[1] in which the relics of Saint Edward the Martyr were eventually enshrined in 1988, the King of England who was murdered in 978 and who was succeeded by force by Ethelred the Unready. It has two communities:

  • A small monastic community who chants the services of the church daily at the shrine
  • Orthodox Christians who form a mission parish.[2] These Christians supplement the congregation on Sundays and feast days[3]

St. Edward's is part of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece (GOC), a Greek Old Calendarists True Orthodox Church headed by Archbishop Kallinikos of Athens.[3] It became part of this jurisdiction in 2014 following the merger of the Orthodox Church of Greece (Holy Synod in Resistance), of which it had been a part since leaving the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in 2007,[4] with the GOC.

The church follows the Julian Calendar and does not maintain communion with the mainstream Eastern Orthodox Church. This church is in communion with the Old Calendar Orthodox Churches of Bulgaria and Romania and that part of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia which did not unite with the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow. In May 2007 it represented nearly one million traditionalist Orthodox Christians.

This is a scholarly branch of Eastern Christianity which maintains it follows original doctrines of Christianity. The Brotherhood and church body look in their lives to the spiritual heritage and example of the Russian Orthodox peoples and the many saints of Britain, particularly those of the formative Kingdom of England who lived in the first ten centuries after the life of Christ.[2]
