Inter-Orthodox consultation looks at nature and mission of the church

A week-long inter-Orthodox consultation is concluding its work, with some forty senior church participants, in Ayia Napa, Cyprus.

The aim of the consultation, which began on 3 March 2011, is to offer distinctly Orthodox insights as part of a world-wide discussion of the doctrine of the Church, or ‘ecclesiology’. The gathering is hosted by the Orthodox Church of Cyprus.

Those taking part come from Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches, church leaders, university professors, theologians, men and women as well as youth, most of whom are members of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Commission on Faith and Order.

They are discussing the WCC Faith and Order document ‘The Nature and Mission of the Church’ and producing a common Orthodox response to what has been described as “this important theological text”.
