Sharing the Ancient Faith in the Cape Fear Region of NC

Welcome! St Basil Orthodox Church is a parish of the Orthodox Church in America, and we are blessed to call Wilmington, NC home. Our services are in English, and our roots go all the way back to the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. All are welcome to come and see what we're about — we’d love to have you!


“Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

— Our Lord Jesus Christ, Matthew 18.20 (RSV)


Our parish began in 2007 when a few faithful families sought to establish an English-language Orthodox Christian Church in the Cape Fear region. Since that time, we have grown under the leadership of Fr Peter Robichau, Fr Timothy Yates, and now Fr Andrew Cannon, into a thriving, diverse, and welcoming community.

Ancient Christianity for here and today

When the Apostles of our Lord Jesus began sharing the joyful word of life with the world, they handed down the fullness of faith “by word of mouth [and] by letter.” The Orthodox Church holds fast to the ancient traditions because they offer us — in this place, in this time — that same joyful word.
