May 2015- UK – The British Orthodox Church 

Abba Seraphim attended the half-yearly meeting of the Anglican & Oriental Orthodox Regional Forum at Southwark Cathedral on 12 May. The meeting, which was jointly chaired by Bishop Geoffrey Rowell and Bishop Angaelos, considered a number of reports and discussed at length concerns about the Christians of the Middle East.

Although the Forum, as a local response to the international dialogue between the two families of churches, has existed for a number of years, it was felt that the current shared concerns for the suffering Christians of Syria Iraq and Libya made it particularly relevant at the present time and the areas of practical co-operation especially valuable. The Forum also welcomed the Christological statement agreed by the International Commission and the ecumenical opportunities to mark the centenary of the Armenian Genocide.
