Deanery Conference & Festival
Dear all,

This email is to inform you about an online event that we hope will appeal to any potential participants of our annual Thyateira Deanery Conference & Festival.

A few of our families who live in London, have been celebrating a Reader’s Vespers online in the last few months, and encouraged by the success of this, we have had the idea of extending an invitation to a wider group of participants.

In the light of a second postponement of the Conference & Festival, we think that we can see a need for some form of communal worship and – perhaps – a continuation of the precious fellowship within the Deanery that has developed over the many years that the Conference & Festival has taken place.
With the blessing of our Dean, Father Patrick, we are inviting you to our monthly Online Reader’s Vespers service.

The online events are being planned to consist of three parts:
  1. The service itself, with different parts read/sung by different families/individuals, using the Deanery approved text. The service should take approx. 45 minutes to complete.
      · Families with children are encouraged to join, as we are flexible to celebrate either Children's or Regular Vespers.
      · Clergy are also invited to join on their own or with their families.
  2. A presentation on the theme of a Feast/Saint that is being celebrated/commemorated at the time (this should not take more than 15 minutes).
  3. A social hour - a time to catch up with people who we may not be able to meet very often - when participants are encouraged to share with one another their current circumstances (this should not take more than 90 minutes).
This whole online event will be organised and hosted by Viktor and Ginka Mastoridis on the Zoom app, and will take place usually on a Saturday at 5:30 p.m., every 2-3 weeks during Lent, and eventually every 4-5 weeks thereafter. The first service is planned for the 13th of March 2021.
If you would like to be notified about these events, please click below to sign up for the Online Vespers Newsletter, which will also be managed by the Mastoridis family.
