It is with great joy that we present for the very first time, the website of St. Mary of Tserha Sion Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) based in London UK. This branch is the first (EOTC) to be established in the UK among the English speaking brothers and sisters of the Ethio-Caribbean community, on the 5th of May 1974, with the arrival of Abuna Yohannes, then known as Archimandrite Arigawi Wold Gabriel, (may God rest his soul in peace).


In the following pages, the Christian historical, theological, liturgical and organisational traditions will be presented in brief from the perspective of the EOTC scholars and hierarchs.

Baptism is a sacrament through which a person is born again and accepted into the membership of the Church after being dipped into water three times in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


Of all the sacraments it is the first, because it is considered as the door through which the believer enters the church and the kingdom of grace according to what was said by the Lord: "Except a man be born of the water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."  (John 3: 5)


Therefore it must be received by believers before they can receive any other sacrament.

If you would like to be baptised into the family of Christ and also learn the values and teachings of the Holy Apostolic church, then please Contact Us.
