The Holy and Great Council, meeting in Crete in late June 2016
His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew offers his dreams and prayers for the Holy and Great Council, meeting in Crete in late June 2016. The Holy and Great Council is the first time in 1200 years that 14 autocephalous Orthodox churches are meeting, with a common desire for strengthened relations and to be a sign of “unity in a world afflicted by conflict and division.”
The Holy and Great Council gathers in Crete in the latter part of June 2016. Approximately 500 individuals will be part of this historic gathering, with a common desire to reinforce their relations and address contemporary spiritual and social challenges in the world. For more information, visit www.orthodoxcouncil.org.

Why has our website changed?
The new site gives us a number of advantages compared to the old site:
- It is much easier to read on mobile devices;
- It is much easier for members of the community to keep updated;
- It has been re-organised, taking into account feedback from the old site.
- It fixes a number of security issues that the old site had.
We hope you like it and we also hope you will give feedback about what information you would like to see on the website.

Seven reasons why YOU should edit this site!
We need to keep the new website more up to date, so we are looking for volunteers to help. We would like to find five people who could each commit to looking after the site for one week every month. It would involve adding articles about upcoming events such as fund-raising activities and taking down or archiving any out of date posts and generally keeping the site up to date. It should only take about an hour when it is your turn, and there is training and back-up support while you are learning. It is not difficult, anyone who can use a word processor or send emails can do it. You just need a computer with internet access. No travel required, flexible times which can fit in with busy work and home schedules.
- Will only take about an hour once per month.
- Anyone who can use email can do it
- Full training given.
- Fits in with busy home and work commitments
- Backup support if something goes wrong.
- You will feel good about helping the Church and Parish
- You can put "I edit a website" on your CV!
