The ministry and mission of the diocese is set in a region of crucial importance and interest globally and includes Egypt, Tunisia , Algeria, Libya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti. In the years since the EDA was formed this vast diocese has seen significant growth and transformation from what was essentially a “foreign” church towards a more truly indigenous one growing numerically and in the provision of its own leadership, and reflecting its own origins in the story of the Early Church.
It remains conscious however of belonging to the wider communion and is especially grateful for the spiritual and material support which assists the diocese's continuing growth and capacity to serve the needs of the people within its several parts, in health and education provision and all kinds of welfare which proclaim the love of God.
EDA members enjoy special access to up-to-date information and the opportunity to participate, in a variety of practical and spiritual ways, in the life and work of the diocese. We hope our website will encourage you to give serious consideration to the privilege of supporting this work.
