Membership of the association is open to those who seek to support the ministry of the diocese of Egypt and North Africa with informed prayer and perhaps, to participate in the life and work of the Diocese. .Members receive a quarterly news letter by e Mail (or by regular mail if without e mail) ,together with the Annual Report.
Members are invited to share Fellowship at our Annual gathering (including Eucharist and our Annual General Meeting (AGM)) which is usually held in London in June. Wherever possible the key speaker will be the Bishop or one of the Assistant Bishops from the Diocese.
Membership of the Association (the EDA) is for those who subscribe at the suggested minimum of £20 per annum. They will then be entitled to vote at the AGM.
The Egypt Diocesan Association is a registered charity; members who are UK taxpayers can Gift Aid their subscription enabling us to receive back from the exchequer an additional 25% (being the standard tax rate) on their subscription. The administrative costs of the association are small and all surplus funds are passed on to ministries and projects suggested by the Bishop.
