Anglicans and Copts unite in prayer for Egypt, Syria and the Middle East

From Christian Today-

People caught up in conflict and unrest in Egypt, Syria and the wider Middle East are being remembered in prayer today by Anglicans and Copts.

A special service is taking place in Guildford on Saturday night as part of the Anglican-Oriental International Commission that has been meeting since Thursday.

The Commission is meeting over four days to discuss matters of Christology and the Holy Spirit, with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, due to join talks on Sunday.

Prayers will be said for Egypt, Syria and the Middle East during tonight's Orthodox Vespers service.

His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, is serving as Co-Secretary of the commission this year.
