Welcome to the Russian Orthodox Parish of St David and St Nicholas in Swansea and Llanelli

This mission parish and our Cardiff parish serve all the Orthodox faithful and those enquiring about the Orthodox faith in Wales.

Our services are primarily in English with some Welsh, Greek or Church Slavonic (the liturgical language of the Russian Orthodox Church) depending on who is attending the service. We are not an ‘ethnic club’ and you do not need to be Russian to join us or understand services. The parish is made up of many nationalities, Welsh, English, Greek, Romanian, Ukrainian and Russian plus many others.

The historic Diocese we are part of shares the rich treasures of Orthodox Christianity with all people, embracing the Orthodox history of these lands and the intercessions of our host of local Saints, in order to draw people of every nationality, tongue, age and race into the life of the Gospel that has been proclaimed in our Church for more than 2,000 years.
