'Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit'

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, One God, Amen.
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.
I would like to thank the Multimedia committee of St Mary of Tserha Sion whose efforts made this project possible as well as the copy typists, proof readers, editors and other members who were involved in making this dream come true.
I hope that those who visit this website will find the topics and information interesting, edifying and accurate.
I humbly present this project to the glory of Our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ, and to the honour and devotion of His blessed mother, Our Lady of Two-fold Virginity, St. Mary, the God bearer. Amen.
