For the first time in the history of the The Greek Orthodox church of the Prophet Elias in Reading ,they managed to throw the cross into the river and bless the waters!

He added that the congregation were unable to conduct the ritual previously as they did not have a permanent priest.

The Reading Orthodox community currently shares St Marks Church in Cranbury Road, West Reading with the Church of England.

Mr Manousos said the community is seeking to acquire a new permanent church and hall in the town.
