The '''Diocese of Sourozh''' is the [[jurisdiction]] of the [[Church of Russia|Moscow Patriarchate]] in Great Britain and Ireland. It was founded in 1962 by [[Metropolitan]] [[Anthony (Bloom) of Sourozh]] and takes its name from a defunct [[diocese]] in the Crimea. Its patron saint is [[Stephen of Sourozh]]. Its temporary [[ruling bishop]] according to the Moscow Patriarchate is Archbishop [[Innokenty (Vasilyev) of Korsun]] (head of [[Diocese of Korsun|Moscow's diocese in Western Europe]]), but many in the diocese regard the rightful head as being Bishop [[Basil (Osborne) of Sergievo]]. The assistant hierarch is Archbishop Anatoly of Kerch.
The diocese has about thirty [[parish]]es in Great Britain and Ireland. It also publishes a journal, founded by Anthony in 1980, entitled ''Sourozh''.
