Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Prince Lazar
The first purpose-built Serbian Orthodox church in the UK (known locally as Lazarica) is opening its doors giving you an opportunity to meet a thriving and friendly Anglo-Serbian community.
Lazarica Church, Birmingham is one of many Serbian Orthodox churches dedicated to the medieval Serbian Prince, St Lazar. It is the first purpose-built Serbian church in the United Kingdom, built by exiled Serbs and their supporters in England with the exceptional help of the philanthropic Cadbury family, together with the late Sir Alfred Owen and his family.
It is evidence and a reminder of the strength and power of faith. Those who came to Great Britain after the Second World War, who lost all their earthly possessions, their friends, relatives, and even their homeland, brought with them their faith and the need to follow the example of Jesus Christ and St Lazar.
Presentations explaining the background of the Church and its founding members, along with a short film on Serbian culture will all be available on the day as well as a barbecue selling delicious burgers and homemade cakes and pastries, using traditional Serbian recipes.
