St Seraphim's Trust presents An Evening of Icons – Walsingham

St Seraphim’s Trust presents an evening of Icons on Wednesday, April 17, 7.30pm start at Walsingham Village Hall, free entry and free refreshments.

Fr. Stephen Stavrou, Associate Vicar at St Michael’s and All Angels, Bedford Park, London will talk about ‘The beauty of holiness’, the art of the Icon and the mission of the church today.

Fr. Stephen is an Anglican priest from an Orthodox background. He studied theology at St John’s College Cambridge and prepared for ordained ministry at Westcott House, while also doing a Masters at Peterhouse. His research focused on the use of liturgical arts in Worship, particularly Orthodox Christian Iconography.

There will also be an introduction to the new Friends of St Seraphim's and an update on the future of St Seraphim's Chapel, including the bid for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

St Seraphim’s Trust is based in the former Walsingham Railway Station, home to St Seraphim’s Orthodox Chapel since 1967. Plans are being developed for a full Heritage Lottery bid this year for funds to interpret and present to visitors the story of St Seraphim’s, a centre for traditional Orthodox Icon painting for more than 40 years, along with the building’s railway heritage (1857-1964).
