Orthodox Catechesis - Discovering Orthodoxy

St SeverusThe London School of Orthodox Christian Studies is launching the first units of a FREE Orthodox Catechesis course on the 1st January, 2013. This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn about the Orthodox Faith for the first time, or who wants to understand their own Orthodox Faith more completely. It is being created as a pan-Oriental Orthodox course and will provide a suitable introduction to the Orthodoxy of the Oriental Orthodox communion of Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Eritrean, Indian, Syriac and British Orthodox Christians.

Contributors to the course will include bishops, priests, theologians, academics and qualified deacons and laity from a wide range of Orthodox communities and congregations. Each unit will consist of approximately one hour of reading materials, with audio and video content, together with suggestions for further study. This list provides an overview of many of the topics which will be covered during the course.

This is a FREE course and we invite you to register for it now so that you can take up your studies on the 1st January. The course can be followed at your own pace, and is designed to fit into a busy lifestyle. The full catalogue of materials will be divided into small sections which can be studied and completed as you choose.

Please use this Registration Form..


But we also need sponsorship to allow us to fund the complete development of this course. We want to make this course FREE to all those who want to learn about the Orthodox Faith from around the world, and so we need your help to support the creation of materials that will interest and inform hundreds of students from Orthodox backgrounds, and those discovering Orthodoxy for the first time. Please make a donation now to allow us to offer this course to hundreds of students, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, around the world. Every donation makes a difference.

The Donation link is for a one off donation. Please consider the Subscribe link which will allow you to make a small regular monthly donation.
