60th Birthday- Save the Day

In the early part of the 20th Century, two CMS missionaries Canon Temple Gairdner and Rev Douglas Thornton laid the foundation for the Anglican Church in Egypt. In 1955, the Egypt sub-committee of the Egypt and Sudan Church Association (based in London) became a separate association, known as the Egypt Church Association, becoming the Egypt Diocesan Association (EDA) in 1976. Still a small UK based charity, EDA has adapted over the years to provide the right support for the diocese and provides a vital link with those who leave the area but still wish to serve the diocese and to increase awareness of the Diocesan work through over different ministries in Egypt, The North of Africa and the Horn of Africa, among the Christian Community of Great Britain EDA Annual General Meeting has evolved to be an annual gathering where old and new friends meet for fellowship, share the Holy Communion and hear news and plans of the diocesan  Bishops. This year is our 60th Birthday and we shall mark this in part by holding our AGM on June 12th at Lambeth Palace by the kind invitation of Archbishop Justin who will preside at the Eucharist and be present for Bishop Mouneer’s presentation. So please save the day in your diary calendar, we envisage it be a popular occasion and numbers may be limited.
