Nikean Club Dinner, 2013

The Nikean Club, which functions under the blessings and auspices of the Archbishop of Canterbury, had its annual dinner, on the 16th October 2013. Many guests and members were present, including Anglicans and Orthodox, and faithful who were also representing other societies, such as the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association (A.E.C.A.) and the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius.

The night began with a Eucharist in the Archbishop’s Chapel, within Lambeth Palace. The Eucharist was officiated by the Rt Revd Christopher Hill, Bishop of Guildford and President of the Conference of European Churches. He also gave a beautiful sermon explaining the importance of Ecumenical Relations between the churches, praying for all the Christians who are persecuted, whilst also praying for the two Bishops in Syria, who have been kidnapped. The night concluded with a dinner, giving the opportunity to the guests and members of the Nikean Club to further their friendship by analysing a number of topics related to the relations between the churches.
