Russian Orthodox ‘missionary’ hieromonk opens rock club
Настоятель Бибирева — молодец! Why not? Traditionalism in the sanctuary; ‘come as you are’ for the laity as I like to say. And no, the club is not actually in the church! The best of both worlds and legitimate evangelism to post-Soviet Russia. Brilliant! As long as it’s not the awful ‘Pious Riot’ kind of ‘contemporary Christian music’ — and it sounds like it’s not.

Reminds me of the ‘Sportsmen’s Club’ undercroft bar I’ve been to at a Russian Orthodox church in Pennsylvania.
