История:
Their parish started its life in 1993 with a handful of English converts to the Orthodox Faith meeting for prayer and worship in a private home. The basement floor had been converted into a beautiful little Orthodox chapel and served the needs of this fledgling community. Some of the early community were Orthodox Christians who felt drawn to more traditional Orthodoxy than was then available in the Greek Parish in Chester. This little group was partially made up of Fr Paul\'s family and some of his ex-parishioners from Congleton from Fr Paul\'s Anglican days. The group formally came under the care of Archbishop Mark of ROCOR on the Feast of the Annunciation 1993.
