If you go into the leafy suburbs of Bournville Birmingham you come across a strange building. It is the Serbian Orthodox Church of The Holy Prince Lazar completed in 1968.  They opened their doors for the heritage weekend in 2017 and we went in.

The priest was talking. He explained in muted English that they hold services every Saturday night which last between 2 and 3 hours. The congregation, which stands, is usually over 150 people with the women facing the icon of Mary on the left and the men facing the Icon of Jesus on the right. The service has music plain chant.

There is a Wikipedia Article on the church here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Holy_Prince_Lazar,_Birmingham and more details on St Lazar here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazar_of_Serbia

We saw the vibrant heart of a community. One that observes a faith that is unchanging and fundamental in it’s vision.
