First All Orthodox Divine Liturgy in Great Britain
The All Orthodox Bishopric conference for the British Isles was founded on June 21, 2010 on the founding assembly in London and it consisted of all canonical diocesan bishops of the Orthodox Churches under which jurisdiction are Great Britain and Ireland. Sinde then, this conference meets two times a year, and within the same there are three chambers: theologic, shepard and educational in which questions of life and the mission of the Orthodox Church on the British Isles is are discussed.
This year, third from now, the Bishopric conference is held on June 30 in the Greek Orthodox Church of Twelfe Apostles in Brookmans Park (Hatfield), near London, on the feast day of the church of this parish.
Otherwise, before the work of the Bishopric assembly there was a liturgical gathering of the Orthodox bishops who together, for the first time, served the Divine Liturgy. So, besides, Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain (Patriarchate of Constantinople) who served, there were also many other bishops from other Orthodox Churches (Patriarchate of Moscow, Romanian Patriarchate, Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia). On behalf of the Diocese of Britain-Scandinavia of the Serbian Orthodox Church there was protopresbyter Dragan Lazic, as a envoy of His Grace Bishop Dositej of Britain and Scandinavia.
