HG Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, and moderator of CTBI’s trustees, has been appointed the Orthodox President of Churches Together in England (CTE) to succeed HE Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain.
Bishop Angaelos commented:
‘Having a President specifically representing the Orthodox traditions was a dream that started almost 15 years ago, and it was with great joy that the first President agreed upon to represent the Orthodox Churches in that specific category was His Eminence Metropolitan Gregorios, a brother and dear friend to us all. We are all thankful for all he has done in the past four years and for his wider ministry across Britain.
‘I look forward to working with all the CTE Presidents, who I am glad to say are valued friends and inspirational Church leaders. Churches and Church leaders witnessing together is the greatest way to ensure that the light of Christ reaches our whole nation, and CTE is a wonderful lampstand from which that light emanates.’
