cte-logoThe Archdiocese represents the Antiochian Orthodox Church in Churches Together in England. We also belong to the Irish Council of Churches and the Irish Inter-Church Meeting.  We think it important for Orthodoxy to have a voice and a listening ear in ecumenical dialogue and work together where appropriate.



Through these ecumenical bodies we wish to play our part in rebuilding the Christian unity of the west.  Although we reject ecumenism as an “ecclesiology of indifference” this is not the only view of those involved in ecumenical dialogue and we welcome that.  We shall be represented at the  CTE 2015 Forum.
