At the beginning of this month, the Anglican Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East met for the provincial standing committee at All Saints Garden Conference Center in Cairo. The meeting was attended by representative bishops of the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa, Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, and Diocese of Jerusalem.
The Agenda of the meeting included; the development of a provincial canon law, updates on certain problems, provincial youth work, provincial clergy conference, and review of structures- province and constitution. The committee also discussed the restructure of the current province due to the need of creation of a new Anglican Province of Egypt.
The members of the committee were able to represent reports, discuss challenges and spend time of fellowship. Let us pray for our leaders as they carry out those missions. May our Lord provide them strength and wisdom as He leads them in their paths.
