Saint Dunstan of Canterbury Orthodox Church

Welcome to the web site of St. Dunstan’s Antiochian Orthodox Church, Parkstone.  We are a community of Orthodox Christians gathered under the pastoral jurisdiction and spiritual care of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East, originally founded by the Apostles Peter and Paul (See Acts. 11:26).  Our parish is part of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of the British Isles and Ireland.  We share the faith of the one, holy Orthodox-Catholic Church of Jesus Christ, following the Tradition of the Apostles and the dogmas of the seven Ecumenical Councils. As a local worshipping community, we are in full communion with the other ancient Eastern Orthodox patriarchates and all other local Orthodox churches that trace their provenance and faith, unchanged, back to the Apostles themselves.
We proclaim this Christian faith as we have received it from Holy Tradition, calling all to repentance and striving to live out our faith in the holy, consubstantial, life-giving and undivided Trinity.  We seek the kingdom of God through the liturgical worship of the Byzantine rite, through prayer and the ascetic struggle and in the fellowship of the gospel, bearing one another’s burdens, until we reach the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our faith, and our life in Christ.  We also invite you to join us on the Lord’s Day to experience the mystery of the gospel through the Orthodox Divine Liturgy as handed down through the ages. We worship on Sundays with Orthros (Matins) at 8.45am and The Divine Liturgy, served at 10.30am
