Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius
A society which promotes coöperation and theological discussions
between Anglicans and
Orthodox. When it was most influential in the earlier XX Century,
it reflected not an heretical ecumenism but a sincere belief that
Anglicanism was already, or would soon become, a national
Orthodox church for Britain,
one in faith with the Eastern Patriarchs. The Fellowship
was partly responsible for the establishment of many Eastern parishes in
the UK. It also sponsored many Orthodox church figures who settled
in Britain, and a number of its Anglican members eventually
became Orthodox. The Fellowship continues to exist today,
and to play a significant role in East-West dialogue,
particularly through its journal Sobornost..
