Meeting four times a year, and organising a variety of events, the Council is a means of expressing the unity of Oriental Orthodox Christians in the UK.
At present it includes members from the Armenian, British, Coptic, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Indian and Syrian Orthodox communities working to live out our common life in Christ in the UK..
Members of COOC were among clergy assisting in the special Service commemorating the Coptic Feast of Nayrouz, hosted for the second year in succession at St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster.
His Grace Bishop Angaelos presided and preached. The Church was full and a large number of clergy from other churches joined the procession as ecumenical guests.
